Homophobia exposed in riveting new work at the National

Published: Monday 3rd of November 2008

As a pillar of British theatrical life, the National Theatre has consistently produced pioneering and affecting work.

Its latest play, Lloyd Newson's To Be Straight With You, continues in this tradition as it tackles the issue of homophobia present in contemporary British society.

The range of characters draw on their personal experiences in a production which mixes powerful performances, sharp monologues and digital visual effects to relate stories of abuse and self-denial.

Critics and audiences have agreed To Be Straight With You continues the National Theatre's rich vein of challenging, compelling drama.

The National Theatre is located on London's South Bank. The first of its three theatres, the Lyttelton, staged its first performance in March 1976, with the Olivier and Cottesloe opening over the next twelve months.

LondonPass holders can enjoy a free backstage tour of the National Theatre, saving £5 for adults and £4 for children on the usual ticket price.
