Window Open

Bran and Tom’s world is changing after the death of Tom’s mother.  Some of the changes they can control, most, they can’t. All they can do is make it up as they go along, blurring the lines between what they keep private and what others make public.

 

Window Open is a period piece, exploring the complicated lives of a gay couple in England during the late 1960s navigating the confusing worlds of private love and public fear. 

 

A fictional story based on factual lives, exploring the hidden history of a life long same sex couple.  

 

Developed as part of Studio Salford's Write for the Stage programme, the play has had its public Script in Hand debut as part of 'Development Week' at the Kings Arms Theatre, Salford. Development Week is an opportunity for emerging writers to showcase new pieces of work performed with professional actors in front of a real audience.

 

Window Open [is] a fascinating exploration of a gay relationship back when being openly gay would get you in prison. He’s crafted the world beautifully and worked through a scenario that’s completely engaging. Mike Heath- Studio Salford.
