The Tony Award-winning TORCH SONG TRILOGY returns to Sydney for Mardi Gras 2013 in a bold new production directed by Stephen Colyer (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Paris Letter, Hello Again). Funny and poignant, Harvey Fierstein’s intensely personal collection of three works chronicles a Jewish New York drag-queen’s quest for love, respect and a life of which he can be proud.

From a heartbreaking first attempt at love with a reluctant older man, to a burgeoning relationship with a beautiful young fashion model, Arnold Beckoff’s greatest torment in life remains his turbulent relationship with his mother. Arnold’s chequered search for love, family and acceptance is a universal story that proves some things in life are worth carrying a torch for.

Directed by Stephen Colyer
