Posted on 14 May 2019

A hard-hitting, hilarious and heart-warming play about the history of the LGBTQ rights movement is visiting Birmingham next month.


Created and performed by Alexis Gregory, the critically acclaimed Riot Act is a powerful solo verbatim piece created from Alexis’s interviews with one of the few remaining survivors of the 1969 Stonewall Riots - a 1970s London radical-drag artist and prominent 1990s AIDS activist. 

Taking its audience on a journey through six decades of queer history., the production shows at the Old Joint Stock Theatre, Birmingham, from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 June.
