Join us for a free first glimpse of First Rumours, a new play by PHM’s award winning Playwright in Residence Stephen M Hornby.
The play focusses on Peter Tatchell’s contested candidacy for the Labour Party in London in the early 1980s, which saw the biggest voter swing in modern political history following an extremely homophobic campaign.
After this rehearsed reading there will be a Q&A with Peter Tatchell, facilitated by LGBT activist and historian Paul Fairweather.
Part of OUTing the Past, the national festival of LGBT history.
Suitable for 11+
Part of PHM’s year long programme exploring the past, present and future of protest, marking 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre; a major event in Manchester’s history, and a defining moment for Britain’s democracy.
