THE LAST SESSION

 

Starring DARREN DAY, SIMONE CRADDOCK, A J DEAN, RON EMSLIE & LUCY VANDI


 

Set in a recording studio in 1996, singer/songwriter, Gideon is holding one last session to record the most important album of his life. To show his undying love to his partner, he plans to record a musical letter of farewell. For this last session, he reunites with some old friends and is joined by an unexpected visitor, for whom Gideon’s sexuality changes everything. The Last Session is a rollercoaster of passion, emotions, hope and humour. It's a story of a man’s past and his hunt for a future - a reason to live

 

The Last Session is partly based on composer Steve Schalchlin’s own experiences and was written in an era in when AIDS was a terrifying and growing epidemic for which the treatment was largely experimental. This landmark musical originated Off-Broadway and features a surging score of blues, rock and gospel with lyrics that only a person who has been close to the edge could write.

 

The show won a host of awards following its 1997 Off-Broadway premiere including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book in the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle and is a GLAAD Media Award winner. The Last Session also received nominations by both the New York Drama League and the New York Outer Critics Circle for Best Musical.
