Torch Song Trilogy by Harvey Fierstein is An acclaimed comedy-drama, which won the 1983 Tony and Drama Desk awards for Best Play and was last seen in the West End in 1985. The stage show, and the subsequent film, have both gone down in gay annals as a moving account of the gay struggle for acceptance and understanding. It tells the poignant story of an outsider’s search for love and acceptance. Originally conceived and performed in three acts, drag queen Arnold encounters passion, thrills, love and loss. This intimate and powerful play is bursting with courage and sharp wit, as Arnold fights for his place in the world and his right to happiness.
