‘Heterophobia is an urban musical for young people 13-18 years old. It is a hybrid fusion of art forms and digital technology. Heterophobia presents the struggle of one young heterosexual male, Ryan trying to ‘come out’ in a gay world, a binaristic sexuality switch of the privileged and the oppressed.’
“This is an incredibly important work for young people; while it avoids the trap of being earnest, it is the company’s honest passion, their knowledge that they are doing something important, and their skill that makes this memorable.” ReviewsGate
