The Adhesion of Love

The extraordinary true story of how an architect’s assistant from Bolton crossed the Atlantic in 1891 to meet visionary queer American poet, Walt Whitman. This new play offers a startling new insight into Whitman in his bicentennial year. It is based on extensive research conducted at Bolton Museum.

The writer, Stephen M Hornby, is a multi-award winner. His last play, The Burnley Bugger’s Ball, gained 5 star reviews. Stephen was awarded the 2018 WINGS by the Swedish International Lesbian & Gay Culture Network for his short film Unchechen.

There will be a short Q&A after the play, chaired by Paul Fairweather.
