Testing Times Returns to the People's Theatre

Published by: Cameron Lowe on 20th Aug 2014 | View all blogs by Cameron Lowe
Back by public demand, Testing Times returns after a triumphant try-out run last year. Described as being “as witty and uplifting as Calendar Girls; as profound and engaging as The Vagina Monologues; and as moving and emotive as Blood Brothers”, the play received critical acclaim and inspired cathartic outpourings of emotion from audience members.

Testing Times

Based on playwright Steve Burbridge’s interviews conducted with HIV+ young men from around the region, this compelling new play explores the life-changing impact of being diagnosed HIV+ from the perspective of a young gay man, his partner and his mother. Frank and funny, poignant and provocative, Testing Times chronicles the journey from anger, fear and despair to acceptance, strength and hope.

It visits The People’s Theatre,  Newcastle for a strictly limited run of only four performances. 

17 to 20 November 2014
