If you like Peter Kaye or Alan Bennet, you’ll love these warm and funny stories. Come and hear them for free. There’s a voluntary ‘pay what you can’ donation to charity and a friendly drink at the bar. Think ‘Jackanory for adults’ or a ‘live’ Audiobook. The stories reveal what it’s like to be shy, gay and living in Leyton – and everyone is welcome, that’s the point. It’s why we’ve teamed up with the mighty Leyton Orient Football Club to host this world premiere event. Book a ticket and these moving little stories will make you raise three things: a smile, a drink and a hankie.

Written by Rob Young

Read by the actor and campaigner Jonathan Blake, who inspired the BAFTA-winning film Pride.

“A fascinating playwright”, The Times.

“Young has an unnatural way with small lethal details that tell entire stories”, The Times.

Pay what you can. Suggested charity donation £10

All money raised by ticket sales will be split between the club’s own charity, Leyton Orient Trust and towards post-production costs for feature documentary ‘After 82’, which tells the stories of the first generation of HIV Survivors in the UK.

Please note: If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket and free up the space for another person. Check your confirmation email for instructions or click here

‘A BLITZY ROMANCE OF GIN, GENTS, GARTER BELTS AND TERRIFIC SONGS!’ The Times

An intimate underground cabaret club opens in the heart of London. A saucy new star shines under the spotlight. Two men struggle to bring their illicit love out of the shadows. The war-torn capital has never been so revealing!

Welcome to the Glitz of the Blitz; where showgirls, secrets and scandal abound. A world where aristocrats jostle with black-market spivs, songwriters take to the streets and nothing is quite as it seems.

Maggie Brown, an aspiring singer and her best friend George Nowodny, a songwriter and Jewish refugee, perform a dazzling act at the newest night club in town, owned by wealthy socialite and RAF war-hero, Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe. Maggie’s beau Tom Connor, paves the way for the sexy and charismatic ‘Miss Nightingale’ to be born, and the musical duo quickly find themselves with a West-End hit! However, what the leading lady doesn’t know, is that George and Sir Frank are hiding a secret and as Miss Nightingale’s success grows, so does a forbidden love between the two men!

Miss Nightingale, the brand-new British musical, receives its West-End premiere at The Theatre at the Hippodrome Casino following five sold-out UK tours and a headline season at The Vaults in 2017. Having been hailed as one of the Guardian’s Top 50 must-sees, now is your chance to experience the show-stopping 1942 set musical, where gay glamour, vintage sounds and spunky Blitz spirit are brought sensationally to life.

Immerse yourself in the wartime world of Miss Nightingale- you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll want to come back for more. Book cabaret style seating now for an unrivalled West End experience unlike any other.
