RIOT ACT

Tue 18 February | 7.30pm | Studio

Direct from the West-End via a UK national tour, Riot Act is a hard-hitting, hilarious and heart-warming exploration of the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement. February is LGBT History Month and this powerful solo verbatim piece is created from playwright and performer Alexis Gregory’s interviews with one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors, a 1970s London radical-drag artist and a prominent 1990s AIDS activist. What did we learn and what have we forgotten? Just how much does history repeat itself? Join us on a journey through six decades of queer history. It’s going to be a riot!
