Ben Batt

The York Realist

Peter Gill’s influential play about two young men in love is a touching reflection on the rival forces of family, class and longing.

Donmar associate Robert Hastie returns following his previous productions My Night with Reg and Splendour for this timely revival from one of our greatest living playwrights.

Ben Batt also returns to the Donmar following Making Noise Quietly alongside Lesley Nicol, who returns to the London stage and makes her Donmar debut.

A Donmar Warehouse and Sheffield Theatres co-production.
