Presented by Tom Marshman
Kings Cross (Remix) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBT communities in London during the 1980s. Tom Marshman uncovers the hidden histories of LGBT communities through memories of the Kings Cross area; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBT communities, bars and culture.
Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.
Commissioned by and developed with the support of Camden People’s Theatre.

“One of the most exciting things about Marshman’s work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound” Big Issue
Review: Exeunt Magazine, Chris White (Feb 2017)
“Tom Marshman’s show isn’t a lecture or a lesson. In lots of ways it isn’t even really a show about HIV/AIDS. And that’s what makes it so ideal as an avenue for dialogue and a tool for social change.”
“The narratives are woven together with intimacy and delicacy, sometimes providing a second-hand account and sometimes through Marshman becoming his subjects. At times they even speak for themselves, reverberating through Marshman’s recordings like ghosts at a wake.”
“His whole performance is considered; whether thorough a series of meaningful gestures that grab the essence of his characters or in the measured changes in costume used throughout.”
“[The show] is eye-opening as a history, but it also draws daunting parallels between the epidemic of forty years ago and the situation we find ourselves in today.”
