About the play

After losing his mum at the age of 4, Jacob has spent his entire life feeling lost and confused about his sexuality with only his ‘alpha male’ Dad around him. That was until he met Kyle, a good looking, already ‘out of the closet’, northerner who joined his school just over 2 years ago and changed everything. As we join the piece, Kyle and Jacob have been dating in secret for a number of months, dealing with the daily challenges teenage life throws at you while also dealing with something much bigger…Jacob has yet to ‘come out’. “Then there’s us” explores the varied views different generations have regarding homosexuality, and the impact this has on a young gay couple. With the fragility of life becoming increasingly prominent, accepting who we really are before it’s too late is not as easy as it seems.

Then There’s Us was performed in Bristol at the Alma Tavern Theatre from the 8th September to the 10th with incredible reviews and near sell out audiences.
