Doors will open at 6:30 PM, to give us a chance to set up and give you a chance to get a drink, greet friends...get comfy.

Man in an Orange Shirt is BBC production, released in July of 2017.  It features two separate yet interwoven stories: Part 1 tells of the obstacles that Western society is putting into the love relationship of the two veterans Michael and Thomas in the immediate post-war period. Part 2 describes the trials and tribulations of 21st-century partnerships, using the example of Michael's grandson. The stories are linked by Flora, as Michael's grieving wife and Adam's grandmother, whose unrequited love for Michael and conservative education results in a hateful response to Adam's coming-out.

Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Morris, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen act in the lead roles, directed by Michael Samuels. The script and idea come from the British bestselling-author Patrick Gale, whose family history is the autobiographical core of the plot. The film won 2018 International Emmy Award for Best TV Movie or Miniseries.
