Parking is difficult - we arrived very early to get on street parking. This produced a second problem - there is no place to eat or drink without a 30 minute wait in the area - the area is primarily studio industrial. Once we arrived at the theatre we were told the doors didn't open until 1:30 and we stood in the sun until 1:45 waiting to enter. Once we entered there were available drinks and snacks for donation - very nice - could take this into the theatre with us, but we were held out another 15 minutes and it was suggested we go outside because the lobby was full. Still suffering from heatstroke this was not positive. Once in the theatre we had great seats for viewing the play - sat in the back row - didn't mind.

This is a great story about how homophobia shapes the life of young teenagers. It tells the story that many of us experienced. I like very much both the movie version "GET REAL (1998)" and this theatre play version "WHAT'S WRONG WITH ANGRY."...continued

Description

Written at a time in British history when the age of consent for homosexuals was five years older than for heterosexuals, legislation called Section 28 prohibited schools and local authorities from depicting homosexual relationships as an acceptable view of family life. While school was the setting for romance with Mr. Popular, John Westhead, Steven spent his life at home telling his parents what they wanted to hear. When fortune takes an unexpected turn, Steven discovers his feelings towards John are reciprocated. In order to discover “it gets better,” sometimes you gotta get angry!
