In Other Words presents six brand new short plays by LGBT writers responding to the stories from Pride In Plymouth’s award-winning LGBT Archive. Its title is inspired by Plymouth’s longstanding independent and radical bookstore of the same name, as it was a safe space for LGBT individuals over the many years it was open in Mutley Plain.
We’ll Meet in Moscow is a wider project making work that engages with LGBTQ lives and stories across Devon. It is led by Playwright Natalie McGrath. There is a wider programme of participatory opportunities across LGBT History Month 2016 taking place.
Five of the writers are from Plymouth: Alan Butler, Jo Lewis, Paul Cooke, Jennifer McDerra and Jon Nash; Natalie McGrath, who is leading on the partnership project We’ll Meet in Moscow, is the sixth writer.
This is a scratch reading and the first time these news play will have been shared with an audience. There will be a chance to have a conversation with the writers and director in response to the work after the readings.
In Other Words is directed by Josie Sutcliffe who has also supported each of the writers dramaturgically. Josie is Co-Director of Dreadnought South West www.dreadnoughtsouthwest.org.uk
