MatthewsMoreMeet Matthew Woodhead -- a sensitive child with his beloved best friend Danny- an awkward teenager struggling to fit in with the gang- a young gay man on the brink of coming out. But in Northern Ireland everything is more complicated. Matthews journey to adulthood takes place against a background of civil rights protests, terrorist bombings, and the SaveUlster From Sodomy campaign. A world where young lives are destroyed by murder, and young minds by sectarian bigotry. Closely modeled on his own experience, Stephen Birkett portrays a world where the bonds of male friendship are strong, but a gay identity is that much harder to attain.
