Brit Playwright and performer Alexis Gregory talks about Riot Act, a powerful, brand new verbatim theatre piece, created especially for the King’s Head Theatre‘s Queer Season in London, which will premiere Tuesday 31 July – Sunday 5 August.

Gregory interviewed one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors – the 1969 NYC riot that kick stared the gay rights movement; a member of a 1970’s London radical-drag troupe- underground alternative performance icon Lavinia Co-Op; and prominent 90’s London ACT UP AIDS activist Paul Burston. All three men spoke about their lives then and their lives now. Riot Act is shaped entirely, word for word, out of these interviews.

This interview with Roger Walker-Dack for www.queergurutv.com was filmed via Facetime
