Gently Down the Stream

3 Male, 0 Female

Martin Sherman Price: $14.95

"A master of the telling phrase and the unforgettable image” ~ The Times

Beau, a pianist expat living in London, meets Rufus, an eccentric young lawyer, at the dawn of the internet dating revolution

After a life spent recovering from the disappointment and hurt of loving men in a world that refused to allow it, Beau is determined to keep his expectations low with Rufus

But Rufus comes from a new generation of gay men who believe happiness is as much their right as anyone else's

And what Beau assumed would be just another fling grows into one of the most surprising and defining relationships of his life

A remarkably moving, brilliantly funny love story, the play reflects the triumphs and heartbreaks of the entire length of the gay rights movement, celebrating and mourning the ghosts of the men and women who led the way for equality and marriage

And the right to dream

It will receive its world premiere at the Public Theatre, New York, on 14 March 2017 in a production starring Tony-award winner Harvey Fierstein
