The passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life
Banana offers an intriguing and often outrageous peek into the individual lives, loves and losses of a range of characters who are only glimpsed in Russell T Davies's Cucumber. Young lesbian Scotty pursues an unrequited love; 19 year old Dean has mysterious family secrets and a sexually charged liaison with the enigmatic Geordie Man; Sian struggles to choose between lover Violet and her over-protective mum Vanessa; Helen is besieged by unwanted attention from an ex; and law student Josh goes home to find his childhood friend and the life he left behind. The stories are beautiful, charming, witty and at times, heartbreaking, as they follow the lives of a wide variety of characters, be they gay, lesbian, transgender or anything in between.
