Riot Act gets London dates and national tour

Alexis Gregory has announced details of the tour for his new show Riot Act, directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair.

The tour takes in London and cities around the country this summer.

In London, the show is hosted at the Arcola Theatre. Other venues include Norwich’s Theatre Royal, the Oldham Coliseum and The Marlborough in Brighton.

Producers describe Riot Act as “a hard-hitting, hilarious and heart-warming exploration of the history of the LGBTQ rights movement.”

Created from playwright and performer Alexis Gregory’s interviews with Michael-Anthony Nozzi, one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors; Lavinia Co-op, a 1970s London radical-drag artist; and Paul Burston, a prominent 1990s AIDS activist, this solo verbatim piece is a breathtaking journey through six decades of queer history.

We’re in London in the main house at the Arcola Theatre.
Three consecutive Sunday eves; June 16th, 23th, 30th.
The 30th June performance falls on the actual Stonewall anniversary weekend.

Old Joint Stock (Birmingham) June 6th – 8th.
Crewe Lyceum. June 27th.
Norwich Theatre Royal. July 3rd.
The Wardrobe Theatre (presented by Bristol Pride). July 10th.
Oldham Coliseum. July 27th.
