“I simply needed to hear your voice again. Being deprived of such comfort made me feel dreary. Dreariness makes me crave for peanut pie. I ate a lot of peanut pie…”

Stephen Thomas seems to have it all; he married his college sweetheart, has a well-paying job, and has a lovely house in suburban London. There’s just one thing… Stephen is in love with a man. Trying to sustain his affair, he finds himself forced to choose between a secure, socially acceptable life or live a free-spirited one down in Paris. When he’s just about to make this big life decision, fate decides otherwise.

Peanut Pie – A Queer Tragicomedy is a newly written play set in 1940’s London. A time when homosexuality was perceived very differently in social, legal, and medical ways. A story about impossible love, loss, and love for peanut pie.
