    Bristol Pride Present: Riot Act

    About

    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.

    Check out the rest of the Bristol Pride theatre line-up:
    4th July (7.30pm) – The Scandalous Love of Oscar Wilde
    10th July (9pm) – Murder, He Didn’t Write

    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.
