The award-winning All I See Is You returns to the North West from May 27 to June 1 making its debut at Hope Mill Theatre following its première and sell-out at The Octagon Studio in Bolton last April.

This love story is inspired by real accounts of queer life in Bolton and Manchester from 50 years ago and was joint winner of the 2017 Octagon National Prize.

Bobby works on Woolies’ record counter. Ralph dreams of being a teacher. One kiss and they’re hooked. But it’s 1967 and their love is illegal. While Ralph buries his head in his books and tries courting his sister’s pal, Bobby can’t deny who he is and throws himself into the Canal Street underground scene in Manchester risking blackmail and arrest.
