The musical theatre company specialists leo&hyde scored a big critical hit with ‘GUY’ and it’s playing several dates in the north-east this February.

‘GUY’ didn’t just scoop awards for Best New Writing at the Buxton Fringe, and Best Show at the Birmingham Festival, it was a huge hit with audiences too. But who is Guy? Well, Guy is a gay millennial looking for love. He’s also fat, nerdy and shy and doesn’t feel like a good fit with the gay community. But when rejection on Grindr pushes him to make terrible life choices, he is forced to confront his inner demons, all the while pushing away everyone close to him. With 12 heart-pounding electronic-pop anthems, this millennial odyssey through bingeing, gyming, prejudice, hook-ups, beauty standards, and stolen identity is a much needed reminder that the only person you can be is – yep! – yourself.
