    Cruise Tickets

    Jack Holden’s vibrant one-man play transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season. Featuring an irresistible 80s soundtrack, this inspiring tribute to those who lived through the AIDs crisis opens at the Duchess Theatre.

    A vibrant celebration of queer culture

    The West End’s Duchess Theatre re-opens with a celebration of queer culture in the 1980s, in Cruise, written by Jack Holden. The one-man show, set to music, will play for a strictly limited season this summer. 

    29 February 1988 is the last day of Michael’s life, and he’s determined to go out in style. Diagnosed with HIV in 1984 and having lost his partner, Dave, two years later, he isn’t expecting to see another morning. But when the clock keeps ticking, Michael has a new challenge. After living every day as if it’s his last, how does he decide what to do with his future?

    Based on a true story, Cruise is written by and stars Jack Holden (War Horse), with Bronagh Lagan directing and a live 80s soundtrack performed by John Elliott.

    Perfect for fans of It’s A Sin and Angels in America, Cruise play tickets transport audiences to the height of the 1980s with its urgent, moving tribute to those who lived through the AIDs crisis.
