ECC presents four of the eight monologues curated by Mark Gatiss. Two were performed at this year’s FEATS, directed by Mark Prescott, and will be repeated + another two directed by Tanya Arler.
Originally broadcast on BBC Four to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, which decriminalised homosexual acts in private between two men over the age of twenty-one, Queers celebrates a century of evolving social attitudes and political milestones in British gay history, as seen through the eyes of eight individuals.
Poignant and personal, funny, tragic and riotous, these monologues for male and female performers cover major events – such as the Wolfenden Report of 1957, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the debate over the age of consent – through deeply affecting and personal rites-of-passage stories.
Tuesday 25th to Saturday 29th of October, 20.00 at The Warehouse Studio Theatre.
