Mon 07th Feb 2022
Join us at The Glory for a free screening of Riot Act on Monday the 7th of February in celebration of LGBTQIA+ History Month. Please RSVP below if you’d like to attend the event!
Alexis Gregory‘s critically acclaimed production returns in 2022 to celebrate LGBTQIA+ History month, as a beautiful digital ‘reimagining’; an online theatre piece, blending the worlds of theatre, screen and storytelling.
The production is formed word-for-word from with three key players in the history of the LGBTQIA+ rights movement: Michael-Anthony Nozzi, a survivor of the Stonewall riots;Lavinia Co-op, an alternative ’70s drag artist and Paul Burston, a ’90s Aids Activist. Gregory’s verbatim solo show Riot Act is a breath-taking, hard-hitting, yet hilarious wild white-knuckle ride through six decades of queer history, directed by Stonewall (1995) writer Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, taking the viewer right up to the present day.
This online production is created in partnership with and commissioned by Hackney Empire; their first-ever digital commission in their 120th birthday year, and is funded by Arts Council England. If you are unable to make it to the event but would like to watch the production, you can find it here: Watch Performance
