Hasbian & Queer Diary Double Bill

Hasbian & Queer Diary Double Bill

An autobiographical comedy about coming out as a lesbian, only to discover that boys are also appealing.

Overview

Hasbian: noun

A former lesbian who has ‘become’ heterosexual or bisexual.

Hasbian uses real teenage diaries, music, and high-school movie actors from 2001-3 to tell a story of growing up in Brighton (the UK’s Gay Capital) under Section 28 (a 1988 – 2003 law prohibiting the “teaching of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”).

Dripping in equal measures with heartfelt earnestness, sharp irony, and humour that bubbles up in the place between youthful confidence and pubescent self-doubt, Hasbian will fill Millennials with buzzy nostalgia, while exposing insidious queerphobia that exists in even the most self-consciously liberal of cities.

Tickets to this performance will include entry to Queer Diary – a night excavating and celebrating queer teenage experiences with diary readings, poetry, fanfiction, and artwork, with a nostalgic musical soundtrack compiled by participants from across the LGBTQ+ community.

Age Recommendation: 18+
Contains sex, including teenage sexuality. Mention of homophobic violence. Food & alcohol consumption on stage.
