‘Sunday’s Child’, written by Craig Hanlon-Smith and directed by Darren Luke Mawdsley, is part of the AIDS Histories and Cultures Festival 2018.
The play explores the origins, immediate and long-term impact of Clause (Section) 28 on the gay community and thirty years later upon the individual.
It begins in 1987 with the initial fallout of Section 28, and fast forwards to thirty years later, when a gay couple face the lived realities of seemingly progressive social change. The play explores a growing gulf in the gay community between those who benefit from a centre-right political direction, and those who can neither forgive nor forget 1988, and Section 28 in the shadow of the AIDS crisis.
This is a scratch event as part of the play’s development, in the form of a rehearsed reading.
Pub doors: 1pm
