About the Show/Event
Find the best A Haunted Existence play tickets at BAC (Battersea Arts Centre), Inner London. In the early 1950s, 17-year-old Geoffrey Patrick Williamson was on the Exeter-to-Bristol train when he got into a conversation with another man - also travelling in his train compartment - who accused Geoffrey of making ?improper approaches'. The other man was a Railway Officer in plain clothes. Geoffrey was arrested at the next stop. When questioned, Williamson revealed the names of men he had had sex with, so beginning a domino effect of arrests, prison sentences, aversion therapy and suicide. A Haunted Existence weaves together history and hearsay to highlight turmoil, stigma and heartbreak and tell the story of Britain's very recent, shameful past. Tom Marshman blends creative technology, music and projection as he retraces a forgotten true story. All performances will be Relaxed.
