Reynholm Industries: a big hard business in a big hard building. Thrusting into the future strongly. Again and again. Pounding into the future,making the future beg for it. The future wants it, and Reynholm Industries wants to give it to the future. That’s what its all about. We don’t want to be like a dead fly regretting what we didn’t do in our short time on this earth. So maybe its a time to make a decision.

A gay musical set in the eighties.

The musical was attended by four employees of Reynholm Industries, Roy Trenneman, Maurice Moss, Jen Barber and Philip, in 2007. Roy, Moss and Jen, all heterosexuals, had been asked to the theatere by Philip, not knowing that he was actually gay, and were devestated when they discovered what show they were going to see.
