Really Want to Hurt Me archiveA funny, bittersweet and painfully honest new one-person play about growing up as a gay teenager in rural Britain in the 1980s, featuring a soundtrack of that decade's greatest music by Culture Club, Eurythmics, Tears for Fears, The Smiths, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins and more. Devon, 1984. Under constant pressure to be straight and act 'masculine', a 14-year-old lad feels his life is more like George Orwell's "1984". School bullies... Teenage heartache... Suicidal self-hatred... An accidental first orgasm... Trying to tape the weekly Top 40 from the radio without the DJ talking over the songs... Dancing defiantly to your Walkman....
