Cruise Summary

Cruise by Jack Holden

Nominated for the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Play Set in London's Soho in the 1980s, Cruise tells the story of what should have been Michael Spencer's last night on Earth. Diagnosed with HIV in 1984, he's told by doctors that he has just four years to live, so as the clock runs down, Michael decides to go out in style. As he parties and bids final farewells to his friends, the clock strikes zero and Michael... survives. With the gift of life, how can he go on living? Jack Holden's debut play Cruise is a kaleidoscopic new monologue celebrating queer culture and paying tribute to a generation of gay men lost to the AIDS crisis. This edition was published to coincide with its West End production in May 2021.

Cruise Reviews

A remarkable piece of writing ... This is a vigorous script that gains extra energy from its bouncing rhythms, its rhymes and its alliteration. * British Theatre Guide *
A captivating story and a must watch * The Upcoming *
