“A one-man masterpiece” (Evening Standard) 

 Nominated for the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Play, Cruise is now playing its’ final shows in London’s West End and must end on 4th September.

Performed and created by Jack Holden, Cruise is “an emotional rollercoaster without ever once losing its hold on your attention” (Evening Standard), featuring a “pulse-quickening, period-pastiche electro soundtrack” (The Telegraph) performed live by John Patrick Elliott.

Cruise is the true story of what should have been Michael Spencer’s last night on Earth. When he’s diagnosed with HIV in 1984, Michael is told he’ll have four years to live. So, with the clock ticking, he and his partner Dave decide to sell their house, flog the car, and spend everything they have to party like it’s the last days of Rome.

Cruise is “The most breath-taking piece of theatre in 2022” (Harriet Thorpe)”

Book now - final weeks – only until 4th September at the Apollo Theatre.

    An intense performance, sustained over 100 minutes. Moving seamlessly from narrative to beautifully pitched song to poetry and back to narrative. This was a tour de force from an exceptional performer. The music soundtrack was exceptional and fitted the narrative wonderfully. I cried, it was an outstanding show. Thank you Jack Holden. Wow
