Riot Act

Tuesday 20th August 2019 at 7.45pm at NST City Studio

 

Created and performed by Alexis Gregory

Directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair


Riot Act is a hard-hitting, hilarious and heart-warming exploration of the history of the LGBTQ rights movement.

Created from playwright and performer Alexis Gregory’s interviews with Michael-Anthony Nozzi, one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors; Lavinia Co-op, a 1970s London radical-drag artist; and Paul Burston, a prominent 1990s AIDS activist, this solo verbatim piece is a breathtaking journey through six decades of queer history.

 

★★★★

Verbatim theatre at its best...Gregory; a powerful presence, shows fierce awareness of his theatrical and political context

The Stage

 

★★★★

Funny as well as moving, honest and truthful ... theatre at its simplest and at its best
