Dragonflies Theatre's writer Patrick Cash teamed up with Em-Lou Productions' director Peter Darney to present 'Queers' fresh from the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, an exhilirating play about LGBTQ empowerment in 2017.
Larry is 25, on a real straight stag-do looking out for the ‘laydeez’... And perhaps a lad. Trashbag Trish is a tawdry drag queen, returning to her rural hometown after her Irish father’s death. Carol is a schoolteacher during the time of Section 28. Young Soho barman Danny is being bored by drunk Old Tom, before he listens to a story of queer liberation. Rob’s a gay Muslim snorting meph at work. And Sapphire dares to be black and trans on the streets of Dalston.
From the comfort of the closet to a drag queen at a job centre, Queers explores the modern LGBTQ experience.
27 June - 2 July King's Head Theatre 115 Upper Street Islington N1 1QN
