AUB students unearth and celebrate the history of Bournemouth's LGBTQ+ community in this brand-new play set in the early 1980s.

"We have a princess on our hands! Come with me, Edward. And after that, you know what, go down to the pier. Take your quill, my little Oscar Mild. Who knows where you’ll find the muse..."

It's 1986 and Edward, a young gay man, is on his way to the bright lights of Bournemouth. He's run away from home, hoping to find a new start, but the shadow of AIDS is already taking hold of the LGBT+ community in Bournemouth and beyond.

AUB students unearth and celebrate the history of Bournemouth's LGBT+ community in this brand new play. Exploring this too often forgotten part of history, and celebrating the LGBT+ community.

Did you know? AIDS' patient zero in the UK was recently discovered to be from Bournemouth. He was a well-loved man who ran a guest house in Bournemouth.

Until the Sun Goes Down features performers from BA (Hons) Acting; set and costumes from BA (Hons) Costume and BA (Hons) Performance Design and Film Costume; and hair and make-up from BA (Hons) Make Up for Media and Performance.
