‘Ridiculously sexy’ Gay Times
Combining dance, drama and the club sounds of the 1980s, We Raise Our Hands in the Sanctuary tells an uplifting story of the power of gay friendship and the enduring importance of queer spaces.
Disenchanted by the London gay disco scene of 1981, two best friends build their own underground club where devotees can escape the racism, hardship and homophobia that stalk the city’s streets. But just as they make it big, ambition, addiction and the dawning onslaught of AIDS threaten to tear their friendship apart.
We Raise Our Hands in the Sanctuary has been developed as part of the Albany’s Hatched programme of new writing.
