A Birmingham-based theatre company dedicated to championing new work by and for womxn and queer people will this evening host its first live Zoom play.
Powerhouse Theatre’s White Noise follows the unlikely friendship of a lonely sex addict MP and a student sex worker as they navigate the trials and tribulations thrown their way during a world pandemic.
Commenting on the company, co-founder Mo Gearing, who has written and directed the play, said: “Powerhouse is dedicated to creating bold, brave and bossy theatre and championing new work by and for womxn and queer people.
“The play has been specifically written to be performed via Zoom and we are using the money we make from ticket sales to donate to the Raze Collective, an LGBTQ+ arts charity. Raze is an incredible origination that works directly with emerging LGBTQ+ people in the arts to help nurture and fund them. As we are a theatre company dedicated to making LGBTQ+ work, we feel strongly about giving back as much as possible.”
White Noise will be performed live on Friday 28 August at 7.30pm. Tickets are £7.50 and are available to buy from here.
