CLOSETS features a tormented 16 year old Henry who, on 12 March 1986, time travels through his bedroom closet and meets up with a similar present day teenager, Ben, occupying his same bedroom 30 years later.
Ben and Henry’s developing friendship highlights past and present-day issues facing young gay teenagers. While our society’s attitudes towards LGBTs has improved dramatically over the past three decades, Ben and Henry’s story shows that confusion about sexual identity and homophobic bullying, can still result in self harming and suicidal intentions.
These two teenagers from different time zones develop a deep friendship offering each support and optimism for the future.
This is an unusual, compassionate and ultimately uplifting story, peppered with sorrow, humour and hope.
