"First Rumours": The Peter Tatchell Play @ Peoples History Museum

Join us for a free first glimpse of a new play by PHM’s award winning Playwright in Residence Stephen M Hornby.

The play focusses on Peter Tatchell’s contested candidacy for the Labour Party in London in the early 1980s, which saw the biggest voter swing in modern political history following an extremely homophobic campaign.

After this rehearsed reading there will be a Q&A with Peter Tatchell, facilitated by LGBT activist and historian Paul Fairweather.

"The Adhesion of Love" @ The Martin Harris Centre (John Thaw Studio)

The extraordinary true story of how an architect’s assistant from Bolton crossed the Atlantic in 1891 to meet visionary queer American poet, Walt Whitman. This new play offers a startling new insight into Whitman in his bicentennial year. The writer, Stephen M Hornby, is a multi-award winner. His last play, The Burnley Bugger’s Ball, gained 5 star reviews. Stephen was awarded the 2018 WINGS by the Swedish International Lesbian & Gay Culture Network for his short film Unchechen.
