Lee Newby’s set — pitched at an off-centre angle in the tiny Turbine — becomes a fully-inhabited home for a play that is like a more reserved version of the American classic The Boys in the Band, updated for an even bigger existential threat to their existence than internalised homophobia.

Throughout all this, Lee Newby's set design mirrors Guy's essence: warm, welcoming, and curated. The decor of the sitting room and adjoining conservatory is gorgeous. Earthy tones mix with plants and knick-knacks, while vinyl records and cassettes sit tidily on shelving units. It's an enviable living space, and everything in it screams Guy. This element of the production is especially visible in the very last scene of the play, where Ryan and Newby manage to capture John and Eric's strident presence in the flat. It's simply not theirs.
