About The Act

Fresh from two sellout runs at Ovalhouse, The Act now transfers to Trafalgar Studios 2 for a limited 5 week season. Sex and politics collide in an innovative cabaret -style production comprised of personal anecdotes, verbatim House of Commons speeches and song, parlayed in a captivating tour-de-force performance by Matthew Baldwin. 

1967. In Westminister the men in suits are putting the finishing touches to the freedoms we take for granted. In Soho, the men in bars are putting the finishing touches to their hairdos. Caught between these worlds is Matthews, a civil servant with a big heart and a big secret.
