Coming Clean

Coming Clean

Coming Clean looks at the breakdown of a gay couple’s relationship and examines complex questions of fidelity and love. The production will headline the King’s Head Queer season which is running from August through to September. The play is set in a flat in Kentish Town, north London, in 1982. Struggling writer Tony and his partner of five years, Greg, seem to have the perfect relationship. Committed and in love, they are both open to one-night stands as long as they don’t impinge on the relationship. But Tony is starting to yearn for something deeper, something more like monogamy. When he finds out that Greg has been having a full-blown affair with their cleaner, Robert, their differing attitudes towards love and commitment become clear.
