This hard-hitting but outrageously funny production was created from Gregory’s interviews with a Stonewall survivor, a radical drag artist, and an AIDS activist. Riot Act is touring the UK from April to August, followed by screenings of the digital companion piece in August.
Writer and performer Alexis Gregory interviewed three members of the LGBTQ+ rights movement to form this poignant and entertaining show: Michael-Anthony Nozzi, a survivor of the Stonewall riots; Lavinia Co-op, an alternative ‘70s drag artist; and Paul Burston, a ‘90s AIDS activist. Directed by Stonewall (1995) writer Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, Riot Act brings to life the stories of these three key players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement in a breath-taking and hilarious exploration of six decades of queer history.
