As part of our Raising Our Voices Project, we are platforming and championing the lesser heard LGBT+ voices. This week join us at The Arcola Theatre to hear three ten minute extracts from plays currently in development. Join in conversation and discussion around the pieces in order to support the progression of the pieces, have a drink, have chat and meet some new creatives.
This week hear from:
‘Turning 18’ , a play based on a true story, about a lesbian woman’s life experience and describes the challenge of integrating her own sexuality whilst living in Iran, and how she used the medium of theatre and political activism to express herself.
“The Panel Game” A story about a lesbian couple who are applying to be foster carers. It challenges a range of people’s prejudices and hopefully makes people think more about fostering.
“Sick Fucks” : Is series of texts from people at the intersection of several kinds of marginalisation. Those of us who are disabled, queer, kinky, sex workers, survivors: people who the system says are ‘sick’, ‘fucked up’, ‘damaged’. Yet many of us are resisting, resilient, much political action comes from the power of survival.
