25/The Decriminalisation Monologues - Brighthelm Centre - Brighton

'25/The Decriminalisation Monologues' consists of two short plays. In 'The Special Friend', Mark moves from 1980s London to rural Ireland for love but, when tragedy strikes, finds he basically has no rights. Whilst in 'I Know What You Are', Moira finds her career threatened by blackmail. Does she just submit to it? Or fight back? Funny, sad, angry and inspiring, these stories chart the struggles and challenges for gay and lesbian people in Ireland at a time when to be gay was to be a criminal. Acting Out were winners of the National GALA Award for Irish Arts and Literature 2017.
