Stonewall Comes to the Drill Hall

Stonewall posterOn a hot summer night in 1969 an incident took place in downtown Manhattan that would change the face of modern sexuality forever.

Darkly humorous, frequently poignant, and set to a soundtrack of swinging sixties girl groups, Stonewall is the story of sexual intrigue, innocent romance and just plain old-fashioned bad behaviour that sparked the most glamorous night of civil disobedience in history.

As we mentioned a few weeks back, this play, written and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair, was nominated in the Best Ensemble category of Edinburgh Fringe Festival's The Stage Awards for Acting Excellence.

The play is now coming to the Drill Hall in London for a short run on 3-7,10-14,17-21 October.

Rikki Beadle-Blair has also created FIT, which is showing at the Drill Hall, as part of its education programme, on 1 and 2 November, with daytime performances for schools. More information here.
