Not For Turning
Hal attends Tory Party conference, where his political awakening soon becomes a sexual one. Welcomed into the Tory inner circle, wide-eyed young Hal from Bolton is easily taken advantage of. Researcher Cruise tells him ‘everyone goes gay at Conference’. As the young men spill out onto the street in the small hours, Cruise and Hal are papped, kissing. The photo hits an internet news outlet and trends briefly on Twitter. The drama considers three possible outcomes – Hal’s descent into drug-dealing; Hal’s marriage childhood sweetheart Cassie, or Hal running a social media team at Tory HQ.
