About Cruise

February 29th, 1988, Soho

“A one-man masterpiece” (Evening Standard) Nominated for the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Cruise is now playing its’ final shows in London’s West End and must end on 4th September.

Performed and created by Jack Holden, Cruise is “an emotional rollercoaster without ever once losing its hold on your attention” (Evening Standard), featuring a “pulse-quickening, period-pastiche electro soundtrack” (The Telegraph) performed live by John Patrick Elliott.

Cruise is the true story of what should have been Michael Spencer’s last night on Earth. When he’s diagnosed with HIV in 1984, Michael is told he’ll have four years to live. So, with the clock ticking, he and his partner Dave decide to sell their house, flog the car, and spend everything they have to party like it’s the last days of Rome.

Cruise is “The most breath-taking piece of theatre in 2022” (Harriet Thorpe)”

Book now - final weeks – only until 4th September at the Apollo Theatre.

Great acting, Moving, Resonant, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you’d like a SUPERB show in which a young man learns what it was like living through the 80s as a gay man grappling with the AIDS crisis.

Don’t see it if you don’t like funny, moving, beautiful theater experiences. This is a masterpiece performed by a phenomenal actor.

Great acting, Riveting, Masterful

See it if you want to see a completely mesmerising one man show. Supremely well acted, thoughtful, funny, heartfelt. Spectacular from start to finish.

Don’t see it if you’re put off entirely by the notion of a one man show, though this is the best I’ve ever seen by some margin.
