A devastating conspiracy aimed at the gay community

In November our Guest Speaker, Stuart Hopp, presented his first book, "The Rainbow Conspiracy".

Rainbow Conspiracy Stuart Hopps

From a chance encounter with a lifeguard on the beach in Cape Cod, attraction blooms for the young Clive Spoke. The U.S. of the late 60s offers freedoms he has not yet tasted in Britain, and ex-Marine Dennis Montrose is happy to oblige. Years later, now an eminent theatrical agent, Clive is devastated to learn of the early death of that first. Rushing to the U.S. to comfort Dennis’ partner he finds there is more to this untimely death than originally thought. With his PA, Shirley Morris, by his side, Clive sets out to investigate and
uncovers a devastating conspiracy aimed at the gay community.

Stuart Hopps is an award-winning choreographer who has worked on major feature films, including
The Wicker Man, with directors such as Kenneth Branagh and Ang Lee. He has also produced work
for the Royal Opera House and most recently, a production of Eugene Onegin for the Welsh National Opera.
