Twilight Song

Twilight Song

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which decriminalised private homosexual acts between men over 21 in England and Wales, the Park Theatre - in association with Cahoots Theatre Company and David Sloan - will present the world premiere of the final play written by Olivier Award-winning playwright Kevin Elyot. Completed shortly before Mr. Elyot's passing in 2014, Twilight Song is set both in the 1960s and the present day. 

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

Twilight Song running time: 
80 minutes (no interval)

In their sitting room in leafy north London, Isabella and Basil are getting ready to take Uncle Charles out to dinner. It’s the summer of 1967 and their secrets are starting to crack as the world around them undergoes a revolution.

Tracing one family’s hidden liaisons over half a century to the present day, Kevin Elyot’s evocative final play conjures a heartbreakingly funny tale of fathers and sons, desire and denial, and lives half-lived.
