Book review: Only Heaven Knows by Alex Harding

reprinted from Gay Star Spring 1991.

Our resident dramturge (I think that’s the word) rather looked down his nose at this wee book.  I quite liked it.  The musical is set mostly in Sydney 1944, the early summer.  It is a sentinmental story of young (gay) love and of experience, in the form of a couple of middle-aged sissies.  That is about all there is to the whole thing – bot on the stage the whole thing has life and energy.

I’d recommend it to any group of gay people who might be thinking of putting on a show celebrating our lives – if you think this is a broad hint you might just be right

1990 Old Nick production of Alex Harding’s Musical “Only Heaven Know’s”
