Kings Cross (Remix) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in London during the 1980s. Tom Marshman uncovers those histories through memories of the Kings Cross area; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBTQ communities, bars and culture.
Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.
Commissioned by and developed with the support of Camden People’s Theatre.
