Four Weeks Until ‘Riot Act’ Embarks On UK Tour

‘A career defining performance…Rikki Beadle-Blair’s direction; brilliant… this stand-out piece of theatre will become part of LGBT cultural heritage.’ – Attitude

In just four weeks, critically acclaimed LGBTQ play Riot Act embarks on a new UK tour for 2020.

The powerful verbatim theatre piece explores the history of the LGBTQ rights movement, and the 10-date tour coincides with LGBT History Month.

The new Riot Act tour opens at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre on Wednesday 5 February 2020, before visiting Harrogate, Bradford, Milford Haven, Cheltenham, London, Keswick, Newcastle, Doncaster, and Bracknell. Further dates will be announced shortly.

The new tour follows a run at the Duchess Theatre in the West End and a successful 2019 tour.

Written and performed by Alexis Gregory, Riot Act is a hard-hitting, hilarious and heart-warming solo verbatim piece, taking audiences on a breathtaking journey through six decades of queer history including the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Provocative, tender, truthful, funny, political and personal, these are stories of queerness, sexuality, activism, addiction, family, childhood, love, sex, drag, community, togetherness, conflict, identity, youth, ageing, loss, fierce queens, and a Hollywood diva.

Riot Act is created and performed by Alexis Gregory, directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, and is produced by Alexis Gregory and Emmerson & Ward Productions and is recommended for audiences of 16 years+. Contains themes and language of an adult nature.
