Set in Kentish Town, North London, Coming Clean places a gay couple’s seemingly perfect lives under the microscope, reflecting on the complex questions of fidelity, love, and the breakdown of a relationship. The show enjoyed its 35th anniversary production in 2017 at the Bush Theatre.
Written 12 years before his most famous play, My Night With Reg, Coming Clean won Kevin Elyot the Samuel Beckett Award for writers showing particular promise in the field of the performing arts.
