Mark Gatiss and cast talk about The Boys in the Band

Mart Crowley’s play opens at the Park Theatre next month

We went to the launch of The Boys in the Band to chat to some of the cast about the upcoming production.

Mart Crowley's play is set in a New York apartment where a birthday party takes place and a surprise birthday gift – in the shape of a male hustler, arrives. The piece premiered in 1968 in New York and was adapted into a film of the same name in 1970.

Directed by Adam Penford, the production has a cast including Mark Gatiss, Ian Hallard and Daniel Boys who spoke to us about their views on the piece.

The Boys in the Band runs at the Park Theatre from 4 to 30 October, with previews from 28 September. The show then tours to The Lowry on 3 November, Theatre Royal, Brighton on 8 November and West Yorkshire Playhouse on 14 November.
