    ‘Well, I'm here now, I'll always be here.’

    Revealed posthumously with the note ‘publishable, but worth it?’, Maurice is a gay love story by E.M Forster that encapsulates the struggle of being a closeted gay man in Edwardian England and the joy of reclaiming a happy ending. Despite having heterosexual norms insistently impressed upon him from a young age, when Maurice enrols at Cambridge University and meets Clive Durham, a fellow ‘unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde sort’, he finds that he cannot choose to continue repressing what he feels, and must wrestle with the consequences.

    This adaption breathes new life into Forster’s novel, telling a queer period story about acceptance, love and identity, while also seeking to bring the story back home to Cambridge, a place of special significance to him.
