No late admission – the ship will depart!
It’s a boys’ night out! Cruise the Rhine with us aboard the MS Gaycruise and listen to the best selections from gay literature. Your stage crew, consisting of Benno Fürmann, Jerry Hoffmann and Gustav Peter Wöhler, promises superb entertainment along with exquisite literature! In the 19th century, acid-tongued Oscar Wilde was compelled to defend his most beautiful love letters in open court. In the 20th century, Thomas Mann, “the most famous closet case in world literature”, appeared on the scene. Today, Édouard Louis, the new literary voice of France, describes the precarious balancing act of being gay and living in the suburbs. We will hear texts full of militancy, erotic encounters in steamy saunas and parking-space mix-ups with uniform fetishists. It’s all here tonight: love, glamour, political protest, sex, humour, madness and music. Take your seat, lean back, the ship is casting off!
