Fables and myths celebrate queer community, friendship and pleasure in this piece of music theatre retelling world history through a queer lens.

The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions is based on the cult 1977 book by Larry Mitchell and Ned Asta.

In this musical adaptation by composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman, the original text is taken on a kaleidoscopic journey by a cast of actors, singers and musicians.

Together they conjure up a world on the brink of revolution filled with battle reenactments crossed with cheerleading, and all-night raves mixed with lute songs and court dances.

The result is a joyful celebration of queer experience that's both vulnerable and provocative – a space where deeply personal stories are shared and soothed through community.

Radical and playful, The Faggots and Their Friends Between Revolutions brings together theatre, dance and song for the ultimate anarchic bedtime story.

Commissioned by Factory International, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Bregenzer Festspiele, the Southbank Centre and NYU Skirball. Produced by Factory International for Manchester International Festival.
