Price £23.5

Widely acclaimed solo theatre piece where Alexis 'channels' six decades of queer icons from Stonewall, radical-drag, and ACT UP AIDS activists. Now until 26 Nov.

A World AIDS Day charity gala performance in aid of and with all proceeds going to the Dean Street Wellbeing Programme.

Post its critically acclaimed summer 2018 run as part of the Kings Head Theatre Queer Season, Riot Act hits the West End for this special charity gala performance.

‘Riot Act’ is a powerful 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; Michael Anthony Nozzi, radical-drag icon; Lavinia Co-Op and prominent 1990’s London ACT UP AIDS activist; Paul Burston.

In this widely acclaimed solo theatre piece, he ‘channels’ these three characters and with them, six decades of queer history. ‘Riot Act’ is hard-hitting, heartbreaking, hilarious, provocative, tender, truthful, personal and political.

Created and performed by Alexis Gregory
Directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair
