IN RESPONSE TO… THE ORLANDO ATTACK, 2016

posted in: shows | 0

St James Theatre, London

In the wake of the deadliest incident of violence ever committed against LGBTQ people in America, Theatre Renegade presented a night to come together and raise our voices; in memory, in protest, in solidarity.

The night featured a mixture of new pieces written in direct response to the tragedy, performances of pre-written texts and musical performances, all selected to honour and commemorate the victims at Pulse nightclub.

Theatre Renegade is a UK-based theatre company that places story, engagement and empathy at the heart of the theatrical experience. With a strong focus on new writing and social issues, they aim to forge and build new creative partnerships between writers and directors whilst nurturing them from the very earliest drafts through to realised performance.

I directed 2 short pieces written especially for this event
