    'A glorious celebration of queer friendship and all kinds of love. Funny, outrageous, heartbreaking and so much fun' KATE DAVIES, WINNER OF THE POLARI PRIZE 2020



    1921: a boy, a girl, a moonlit midnight kiss.




    A terrible, repulsive kiss.



    Bettina and Bart have grown up as best friends, so surely they will end up together? After all, Bettina is young, rich, headstrong.... and gay. Bart is young, rich, charismatic... and also, definitely, gay. Any doubts are dispelled by, in short order: that ghastly kiss; a torrid encounter for Bettina in the school boiler-rooms; and an eye-opening Parisian visit for Bart.

As the '20s and '30s whizz past in a haze of cigarettes, champagne and casual sex, Bart and Bettina have no idea that they are hurtling, via Hollywood and Egypt, Paris and London, towards tragedy and bloodshed...
