Written by the American actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein, Torch Song Trilogy tells the poignant tale of an outsider’s search for love and acceptance.

Bursting with courage and sharp wit, Torch Song Trilogy follows the story of drag queen Arnold as he strives to find his place in the world.

Fierstein’s Tony Award-winning comedy-drama stars David Bedella, who takes on the lead role alongside Sara Kestelman, Joe McFadden, Perry Millward and Laura Pyper.

This intimate and powerful play is directed by Douglas Hodge, who won an Olivier Award in 2009 for his role in the Chocolate Factory’s production of Fierstein’s La Cage Aux Folles.
