Away From Home

re:play Festival 2014

Kyle is comfortable with his life as a male escort until the day he is hired by a premiership footballer, and finds himself falling in love.

But can Kyle maintain a relationship with a closeted footballer in a country where not one pro player is out? Can he go on pretending that the homophobia endemic in the game is nothing to do with him? Does he know what a relationship means, when, for him, sex has only ever been a transaction? Can he ever tell his friends – and his family – the truth?

Hailed by The Independent as ‘a singularly brave and extraordinary piece of theatre’, and playing to sell-out audiences at last summer’s 24:7 Theatre Festival, Away From Home garnered two awards; the Equity Vicky Allan Memorial Award for Best Show of the Festival and Best Actor for Rob Ward’s tour-de-force portrayal of male escort, Kyle.

An edgy, moving and subversive one man show laced with sharp humour, Away From Home goes in for a hard tackle on football’s last taboo.

Still not sure Away From Home is for you? We catch up with leading man Rob Ward…
