A verbatim exploration of the LGBTQ rights movement, part of Pride 2019
Emmerson & Ward Productions
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
Funny as well as moving, honest and truthful ... theatre at its simplest and at its best
