SCOTTISH PREMIERE

A young man leaves his small hometown to find refuge in the bright lights and warm embrace of the big city. He discovers solace and joy in the city’s LGBTQ+ scene, but soon finds himself navigating a terrifying unfolding health crisis, almost completely ignored by the government.

Following a sold-out run of performances in Dundee in 2023, Small Town Boys will be touring six cities in Scotland during 2024, performed in a nightclub venue in each location.

Presented in Glasgow at the iconic Polo Lounge, a cast of eight dancers, a community cast, a soundtrack of 80s & early 90s anthems, as well as original music, bring the joy and chaos of the club scene to life.

Choreographed by the award-winning Thomas Small and designed by Becky Minto, Small Town Boys will have audiences laughing, crying and dancing the night away.
