Staircase ‘still relevant’ as play returns to London for first time in 50 years

Charles Dyer’s dark comedy Staircase is returning to the capital for its first professional run in almost half a century.

Set in 1960s London, the two-character play tells the story of a same-sex couple who run a barbers in Brixton. Over the course of an evening, it follows the men as they contemplate their relationship, the secrecy that surrounds their sexuality, and attitudes towards the LGBT+ community at the time.

The revival, at Southwark playhouse, stars Paul Rider and John Sackville. They’ve been speaking to Anthony.
