Outings is a new show written by the team behind the recent acclaimed production of The Act at Trafalgar Studios, and directed by Tony Award winner David Grindley, whose recent West End credits include Daytona, Our Boys and Journey's End. The core cast of four are joined by a different guest star each day.
Inspired by recent high-profile 'comings out', from Tom Daley and Ellen Page to Ricky Martin and NBA star Jason Collins, the show is based around interviews with and submissions from gay men and women from around the world, exploring how they came out and what effect it has had on their lives.
