Inspired by real accounts of queer life from 50 years ago, All I See is You is a National Octagon prize-winning play set in Bolton and Manchester. Following its critically acclaimed run at Bolton Octagon last year, the play returns to Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester this May.

All I See is You was the recipient of the prestigious Octagon National Prize in 2017.

Bobby works on Woolies’ record counter. Ralph dreams of being a teacher. One kiss and they’re hooked. But it’s 1967 and their love is illegal. While Ralph buries his head in his books and tries courting his sister’s pal, Bobby can’t deny who he is and throws himself into the Canal Street underground scene in Manchester.

Written by Kathrine Smith, All I See is You was the recipient of the prestigious Octagon National Prize in 2017. The play was written as a response to the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK.

 A powerful and tender two-hander.

Set to a wonderful 1960s soundtrack, featuring the music of Dusty Springfield, All I See is You is a powerful and tender two-hander which tells the tale of two ordinary lads poised between lust, self-doubt and arrest.
