‘Bottom’ show @ Guildhall Gloucester
Sep 12 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Locked in his bathroom during a tragic third date, Willy Hudson asks: are you a top or a bottom?

Bottom is about bums, Beyoncé and burnt fish fingers. Join Willy for a queer coming-of-age remix, as he questions if ‘bottom’ in the bedroom means ‘bottom’ in life –and whether Beyoncé can help put his love on top.
★★★★  ‘Funny and brilliantly performed’ – The Wee Review

‘A Haunted Existence’ show @ Blackfriars Priory
Sep 13 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Tom Marshman in a special performance blending creative technology, music and projection as he retraces the forgotten true story of a young local man who was arrested for gross indecency. In the early 1950s 17-year-old Geoffrey Patrick Williamson was on the Exeter to Bristol train when he approached a plain clothed railway officer. This pass lead to Williamson being arrested: on questioning, Williamson revealed the names of men he had had sex with, beginning a domino effect of 17 arrests, prison, aversion therapy and suicide.

A Haunted Existence highlights the turmoil, stigma and heartbreak of this experience by weaving together history and hearsay to tell the story of Britain’s very recent, shameful past.
