A filmmaker will take on one of the lead roles in a new play he has written which will premiere in Watford next month.

Three Proud Men has been written by Watford resident Ian Port, of Think About It Films, and will be performed for the first time at the Pump House Theatre on Saturday, February 17.

Directed by Olivier Award nominee Dan Clarkson and also starring Bryan Timberlake and Lee Keogh, who also live in Watford, Three Proud Men explores more than 90 years of life through the eyes of three gay men who call the town home.

The play asks: “Has Watford and the wider world made them feel truly ‘at home’? Are they proud of Watford and are we proud of them.”

In association with Harlequin Theatricals, the play is being presented by Watford Proud, an organisation that celebrates the town’s LGBTQI+ community by holding events, entertainment and activities throughout the year.

Watford Observer:

Three Proud Men says the audience will “be moved to tears of joy and sadness and perhaps discover where the true answer lies”.

Tickets for the performance at the Local Board Road theatre cost £12 for adults and £10 for concessions and are available from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/proudwatford/three-proud-men/e-qapqad
