56 Dean Street’s highly successful web series The Grass Is Always Grindr is back. Bigger bolder and filmed across the city. The tales follow handsome closeted boxer Adam (Taofique Folarin) and ‘loud and proud’ Insta-famous Joe (Denholm Spurr) struggle with their romance – as Adam tries to balance a HIV diagnosis against his upcoming fight, and PrEP-taking Joe ends up on the chillout scene. Francis (Jonathan Blake) has a fling with a twist, and Ryan (Matthew Hodson) confronts ghosts from the past.
New characters include 19-year-old DJ Leo (Adonis Jenieco), drag queen club promoter Trish (Richard Watkins), manic chillout host John-Paul (Alexis Gregory), compassionate pornstar Eve (Siân Docksey) and psychosexual therapist Fabian (Richard Unwin).
Made with generous support from Public Health England, MAD Trust, MAC AIDS Fund and Impulse London, Season 2 gives a truly pan-London look at gay sexual life across the capital: from The Glory to legendary Heaven, to 56 Dean Street and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital itself.
Written by Patrick Cash, directed by Luke Davies, and produced by Dragonflies Productions (The Chemsex Monologues), and Brown Boy Productions (Soft Lad), with the help of CW+ and Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, the new series is a ‘must watch’. Season 2 comprises of twelve episodes, released fortnightly from 13th March 2019 on the 56 Dean Street YouTube channel. Watch the trailer for Season 2 below and catch up on the first series here.
