June 1972. David Bowie sings "Starman" on British T.V and lights a fire in Steven Patrick Morrissey.
This teenage boy emerges from the cocoon of his bedroom onto Manchester streets beset with skinhead gangs with rampant homophobic and racist views. At school he encounters a brutal headteacher, a bigoted Catholic priest with a tendency towards humiliating young boys and the ever present taunts of other children in the playground.
Thorn portrays how this young Mancunian wrestles with the problems of his own identity, sexuality and social pressures. He finds solace in the records he listens to and his love for Glam Rock.
Start Time 7.30pm
