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.
We have put safety measures in place which follow current government guidance that we ask all visitors to the theatre to adhere to. All ticket holders will be contacted with full details before each performance. Please click here for more information.
