About the Show Less...

A touching a true love story unravels amid the many wonderful characters that inhabit London's Soho. Read More >

Clayton Littlewood’s award-winning book, Dirty White Boy: Tales Of Soho, based on his experience of running a shop on Old Compton Street, has won acclaim from critics and celebrities alike for its frank and funny portrayal of modern Soho. Now it comes to the stage in this funny and insightful adaptation in which a touching and true love story unravels.

From his window on one of the most colourful street corners in the world, Littlewood sat and blogged about the real life characters that passed through his doors. Characters range from the aging Polari-speaking Leslie, Sue and Maggie from the brothel upstairs, Angela the feisty transsexual, the bizarre Thongman and Chico the campest queen on the street. Although writing about prostitutes, street cleaners, bag ladies, rude boys and shoplifters, everyone was written about with humour and sensitivity. The blog then became a highly successful column in thelondonpaper.
