The Act Tickets

Trafalgar TheatreLondon

Fresh from two sell-out runs at Ovalhouse, The Act now transfers to Trafalgar 2 for a limited 5 week season.

1967. In Westminster the men in suits are putting the finishing touches to the freedoms we take for granted. In Soho, the men in bars are putting the finishing touches to their hairdos. Caught between these worlds is Matthews, a civil servant with a big heart and a big secret.

Sex and politics collide in The Act, a ground-breaking cabaret-style production comprised of personal anecdotes, verbatim House of Commons speeches and song in a captivating tour-de-force performance by Matthew Baldwin.
