Based on the motion picture Humpday (written & directed in 2009 by Lynn Shelton), Straight is a razor-sharp new comedy from acclaimed writer D. C. Moore about male friendship, sexuality and how the two things can be blurred more easily than one might think . . .
Lewis and Waldorf were inseparable at university. Ten years on and a lot has changed. In the middle of a drunken night out, they make a bet that will take their friendship to whole new level. You'll never look at your best friend in the same way again . . .
Adapted for the stage by award-winning writer D. C. Moore, author of Town, Honest, Alaska, and The Empire (all published by Methuen Drama) Straight premieres in the Crucible Lyceum Studio, directed by Richard Wilson.
