Production details

This rich, diverse history is the foundation of this new solo stage show with music, including songs written and performed by her, that will be 'flagging up the lesbian history'. Combining acapella songs, humour, archive materials and first-hand testimony, Forty Years Outwill re-visit, reflect and re-enact some of the slogans, the sit-downs, the sorrows - and the solidarity. It will, quite possibly, make you angry, make you cry, make you laugh and make you proud.
