A powerful solo verbatim show spanning six decades of queer history, created from interviews with a Stonewall survivor, a 1970’s London radical-drag artist and a prominent 1990’s AIDS activist.
A powerful solo verbatim theatre piece created entirely word-for-word out of playwright and performer Alexis Gregory’s interviews with one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors, a 1970’s London radical-drag artist and a prominent 1990’s AIDS activist, spanning six decades of queer history with each story taking us right into the present day.
This critically acclaimed audience-favourite ran as part of the 2018 Kings Head Theatre Queer Season and received a West End charity gala performance at the Duchess Theatre.
Riot Act is hard-hitting, hilarious, heart-breaking, provocative, tender, truthful, personal and political. Most importantly, in a year that marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the show reminds us that our LGBT+ rights were hard fought for, and that we still continue the fight for equality.
Created and performed by Alexis Gregory and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE.
