A response to a new collection of previously unpublished stories by Radcliffe Hall. Edited by Dr Jana Funke. Initially performed by Emily Souter-Johnson at Exeter Phoenix as part of Being Human 2016. I performed it at Birkbeck University in 2018 as part of the 90 year celebration conference of The Well of Loneliness
Part of In Other Words a collection of new LGBTQ short plays in 2015 and 2016, which was part of the wider We’ll Meet In Moscow project. All the plays were in response to Plymouth’s LGBTQ Archive run by Alan Butler. The six plays were given rehearsed readings at the Barbian in Plymouth and Exeter’s Bikes Shed Theatre.
I have been reading/performing Electric Spaces in a variety of locations and events, beginning with the Hidden Histories conference at Plymouth University 2016, and Exeter Pride in 2017.
We’ll Meet In Moscow
A love story between two women that spans a hundred years, moves across continents, occurs in a multitude of languages.
Is a response to the banning of Gay Pride in Moscow, August 2012, for 100 years. As we historically celebrated equal marriage rights here in England and Wales. LGBTQ rights were being diminished elsewhere.
A story about hope, the distances we travel, and the lengths we might go to when falling in love.
An Arts Council England funded project.
Scottish Kiss was commissioned by Paines Plough www.painesplough.com in partnership with Bristol Old Vic as part of their Come To Where I’m From new writing project. An experimental autobiographical exploration between 800 years of Scottish History and a version of my parents story, via a conversation between me and Robert the Bruce. Originally performed by me in Bristol Old Vic’s Studio.
Scottish Kiss is also part of Paines Plough’s App for this project.
