LGBTQ+ History Club

LGBTQ+ History Club

Join LMA’s  LGBTQ+ History Club’s first foray into the digital arena: Queer history is full to the brim with untold narratives of small acts of defiance. An Elizabethan woman stitches a beard from her pubic hair to marry the woman she loves. A Punjabi-speaking Muslim girl tries to make her parents understand who she is by translating the untranslatable. A drag queen fighting in World War II must literally lip sync for her life.  How do you go about adapting these for the stage?

Join Sam Arbor and Clodagh Chapman - together comprising two thirds of LGBT-led theatre company Bedlam Chorus - as they reflect on the making of buttterfly, "a brilliant show full of heart – it’s history that is far from dull and has been smacked through a queer kaleidoscope of charm, dark humour and vibrancy".
