Scenes from the Revolution
Book launch and panel discussion
SUNDAY 11th November

FREE 60mins 14+
We kick of a day of theatre focus with the launch of Scenes from the
Revolution: Making Political Theatre 1968-2018, a new book edited by Kim Wiltshire and Manchester-based Northern Irish playwright, Billy Cowan. Celebrating 50 years of political theatre in Britain through essays and interviews – including key LGBTQ work – the book explores a rich history of political theatre and asks: how might theatre makers now apply these approaches in a politically troubled world?
We invite you to join with our panel of local and international writers and theatre makers, including Billy Cowan, Conor Mitchell and Stacey Gregg, in exploring the role of queer theatre and storytelling in engaging with some of the biggest issues we face right now, both locally and globally.
