Riot Act is a solo verbatim show, created entirely, word for word, out of interviews
with three key-players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement; Michael Anthony
Nozzi; a survivor of the Stonewall Riots, Lavina Co-op; an alternative ‘70s drag artist,
and Paul Burston; ‘90s London AIDS activist.
Following several UK tours and a special West End performance, this critically acclaimed audience favourite is a breathtaking, rip-roaring, white-knuckle ride through six decades of queer history, taking the audience right up to the present day.
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 a celebration of queer activism across the decades, pulling no punches, hilarious and inspiring. It’s a riot!
