Some Independent Theatre productions can be so good they outshine many from mainstage theatre companies. Particularly when they combine great skill and passion for the subject matter. Torch Song Trilogy is one of those.
The play ranges from comedy, to bed-hopping farce, to gripping drama.
It opens with the stage stripped back to the bones of the theatre walls. Three Drag Queens apply their make-up in front of stage mirrors, to prepare for a performance.
Simon Corfield shines as the wise-cracking Arnold.
