London Pride

On the 11th May 1941 at 3.45am during the Blitz, a high explosive bomb blasted The Admiral Duncan Pub in Old Compton Street. 58 years later a nail bomb exploded in the same pub, now a popular gay venue. These historical and bitterly ironic facts – both the work of right wing extremists –provide the backdrop for this intimate drama about a family in crisis.
