Direct from the West-End and a successful summer 2019 tour, the critically acclaimed Riot Act is a hard-hitting and hilarious and moving exploration of the history of the LGBT rights movement.

This powerful solo verbatim piece is created from 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.

Join us this February to mark LGBT History Month, with this journey through six decades of queer history….it’s going to be a riot!
