About Fast Love

He tells us about the small moments that changed him, his sexuality, and his identity in the wake of life changing and extremely isolating moments. Join him at his confessional (minus the priest,) self analysing (minus the psychiatrist,) house party (minus the guests.) The play specifically surrounds mental health within the LGBTQ+ community, as Rory navigates London attempting to connect with his community through sex, Grindr and ‘pockets of intense human contact that act like anaesthetic.’ It is full of sordid sex stories, painful confessions and multiple pleas for help. It is a story with twists and turns, and despite finding yourself rooting for Rory – he is ultimately cripplingly alone onstage. We all know a Rory. As an all-queer cast and creative team, we want to shine a light on untold LGBTQ+ stories. Mental health is a huge problem amongst queer young people, with over half of the LGBTQ+ population suffering from depression last year. LGBTQ+ people are 6 times more likely to attempt suicide than others. Rory’s story is important.
