A new touring version of All the Bens By Ian Townsend starts with a preview at Oldham Library.

It will also be visiting Hope Mill in Manchester, Kings Arms Salford, Buxton Fringe, Crewe Lyceum and ending up in London at the Camden Fringe.

Ben likes Al, but Al says he’s straight. Al likes Henry, but not in that way. Besides, Al has other things to worry about. Like his girlfriend. And finding a job. And life.

A portrayal of loneliness, desire, sexuality and what happens when you meet your monster in the park.

Funny, sharp and brutal, this contemporary love story, first seen as part of Manchester’s 24:7 festival, contains strong and explicit language. Suitable for 15+
