As Pride celebrations and the spreading legalisation of gay marriage are met with a rise of homophobic leaders and protests against inclusive education, it is both hard and easy to believe that until 1967 homosexual acts were illegal in the UK, with countless gay people persecuted. Bringing the tragic story of one such person to the stage, whose arrest in 1954 led to a string of persecutions against gay men in Taunton, Tom Marshman will tour A Haunted Existence following a debut in Bristol last year.
