Eye Of A Needle

The Public Reviews
So So Gay
“The UK is like the Holy Grail and they’re all expecting the crusades. We have to give it to them.”
Laurence loves to go out, get wrecked and rave to dubstep. He pays for it with a job at UK Immigration Control. Deciding who does or doesn’t get to stay in the country is hard enough without a hangover.
Ugandan gay rights activist Natale Bamadi finally makes it to the coveted shores of the United Kingdom but neither she nor Laurence can be prepared for what happens when her high profile case is dropped onto his desk.
Provocative, topical and savagely funny, Eye of a Needle gets under the skin of a system branded by both Left and Right as ‘not fit for purpose’.
Chris Macdonald’s debut play has been under development with Out of Joint and was long-listed for the Bruntwood prize for playwriting.
Please note that this production contains strobe lighting, graphic language of a sexual nature and references to violence.
