QUEERS

SUNDAY 18 JULY | 7PM

Criterion Theatre, Coventry presents ‘Queers’ by Various writers – curated by Mark Gatiss

‘Queers’ is a wonderful collection of beautifully-written monologues, all by different writers, which celebrates a century of evolving social attitudes and political milestones in British LGBTQI+ history, as seen through the eyes of different individuals.

A young soldier returning from the trenches of the First World War recollects a love that dare not speak its name. Almost one hundred years later, a groom-to-be prepares for his gay wedding.

Poignant and personal, funny, tragic and riotous, these monologues for male and female performers cover major events – such as the Wolfenden Report of 1957, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the debate over the age of consent – through deeply affecting and personal rites-of-passage stories.

They were curated by Mark Gatiss and broadcast on BBC Four in 2017 and also staged at The Old Vic in London.
