        Icarus In Love

Icarus In Love

The swinging 60s and Reg and Henri are living the dream. Resident musicians in the smoky enclave of a Soho jazz club, they enjoy a glamour and verve that others envy. Life is a party but this party comes at a price. . .Gay men at a time when homosexuality is a criminal offence; interracial lovers in a racist society; jazz warriors in the time of the flop-haired Beatles: they are existing on the fringes of a society that shouts free love but can't always deliver. As brutality spills into their world and gangsterism seeps into the Club, Reg and Henri's old demons rise up. . .
