Theatre Watch: Seconds To Midnight

A play that explores queer friendship.

Theatre Watch: Seconds To Midnight

Written by Jessica Tabraham, Seconds to Midnight explores queer friendship, platonic love and nuclear anxiety, following Jo and Eddie through the first seven minutes of their friendship – and the final seven hours of the world.

The show sets out to explore the unique dynamic between queer men and women.

"It’s so exciting to be able to put a story about queer friendship centre stage – queer love stories are wonderful, but these stories deserve to be told too..." explains Katie Kirkpatrick - the show's director and producer. "It was important to us to talk to a range of queer people in creating this show, in order to put authentic experiences centre stage, and we’ll also be incorporating some of this into the final production. We really hope the dynamic between Jo and Eddie resonates with audiences, and helps them to really appreciate their own friendships."
