Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Cllr Lynda Hyde, the High Sheriff of East Sussex, Michael Foster and Peter Kyle, MP for Hove & Portslade were among the dignitaries attending the first performance of The Seven Doors of Danny at St Andrew Church, Hove last night.


The Seven Doors of Danny is a song cycle, with music composed by Ricky Horsecraft and words by award-winning poet, John McCullough. Through a series of diverse songs they chart the life of Danny as he travels from the innocence of childhood through to old age, as a gay man.

Through the seven doors, Danny is challenged by different pressures and influences in his attempt for self discovery, dealing with the issues and consequences of whichever door he finds open or firmly closed, including experience of bullying, temptation into crime, the desire for love, and finally self-realisation.
