Kings Cross (REMIX)
Back by popular demand! Tom Marshman uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in London during the 1980s
Kings Cross (Remix) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in London during the 1980s. Tom Marshman uncovers those histories through memories of the Kings Cross area; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBTQ communities, bars and culture.
Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.
“A tour de force performance.”
★★★★ The Gay UK
“An engrossing and psychedelic time warp that makes us connect with a personal side of history we tend to forget about.”
★★★★ Grumpy Gay Critic
“There’s a powerful message here… As long as those like Marshman continue to fly the flag and dance to the tunes, we know their legacy is in good hands.”
“One of the most immersive and exciting performances of queer history you’re likely to find.”
“Evocative social history… the artist’s affection for the stories he’s telling is palpable.”
