DetailsThe Last Session
is partly based on composer Steve Schalchlin's own experiences and was written in an era in when AIDS was a terrifying and growing epidemic for which the treatment was largely experimental. Set in a recording studio in 1996, singer/songwriter, Gideon is tired of being ill and ready to give up. He's holding one last session to record the most important album of his life. To show his undying love to his partner, he plans to record a musical letter of farewell. For this last session, he reunites with some old friends and is joined by an unexpected visitor, who shares Gideon's Christian faith and for whom Gideon's sexuality changes everything. The Last Session
tells Gideon's story: of faith, love and hope and of the search for a reason to go on in the face of pain, indignity and adversity. Running time: 2hrs 20minsPerformers Darren Day, Simone Craddock, AJ Dean, Ron Emslie.
