Inside Out comes to London in October

Inside Out is a show about discovering identity and defying stereotypes in a world that insists upon boxing, packaging, and labelling. Christina Bloom shares her experience with matters of the heart in this thought-provoking look at sexuality through the eyes of a one-woman, 'one-man' band.

    Milk Presents... Joan

    What happens when you combine a historical plot of sieges between France and England with a talented actor and drag king... this is in no way a drag to your evening.

    Speed Twins at Riverside Studios (by Maureen Chadwick)

    Using the passage towards death as a lens, and a "dyke heaven" as the setting, different aspects of being a lesbian through the 1900s compared with modern times are discussed, re-enacted, rejected and accepted by the core three characters, ably played by the 3 strong all female cast. Humour is paced well throughout, although the overuse of lesbian stereotypes was a little staid at time. For most of the play, we don't know (along with the characters) exactly where they are and why they are there. However, by the time of the big reveal, it has all begun to make sense.

    Freakoid (Ovalhouse)

    Dear quiet unassuming Emma 4, we have all met her at some point in our life. A woman of a certain age who has lived a disappointing life which has left her, well, a tad neurotic and lets be honest we’ve all discounted her as a boring and pointless. However, in this whip-smart show Emma 4 is anything but.
