Moment of Grace Tickets

The princess, the patient and the handhake that changed the face of AIDS

Tickets from £16

Overview

2022 is the 35th anniversary of Princess Diana’s opening of Broderip Ward at The Middlesex Hospital. This play addresses topics and events that are largely forgotten, an untold part of recent LGBTQ+ history.

Based on personal testimonies, Moment of Grace by Bren Gosling (Arcola, Pleasance, New Wimbledon Studio, Bloomsbury Studio, RADA Studio and King’s Head Theatre) tells the story of the famous visit by Diana Princess of Wales to Britain’s first AIDS Unit and its impact on three people: Andrew, a patient, Jude, a nurse, and Donnie, a fireman estranged from his son. AIDS was taboo. Even being seen to work on this ward could cost you everything. Worldwide interest, news crews and a televised interview followed. To change public misconceptions, would you have risked it?

This one act play showcased to acclaim at Bloomsbury Festival 2018 and in 2020 won the NO: INTERMISSION International One Act Play Competition. A filmed version was streamed from The Actors Centre, and this was awarded an ONCOM Commendation by The Offies.

There will be a post-show talk after the 4pm matinee performance on Saturday 9th July.
