Event description
The stories of life for LGBTQ+ people in Ireland before the decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1993.

About this event

Winner of the National GALA Award for 2020 and Nominated for Best New play at Prague Fringe, Brighton Fringe and Manchester Fringe.

Gay Project are delighted to be hosting 'The Decriminalisation Monologues' by Acting Out performance group drawn from the LGBTQ+ Community in Dublin.

The Decriminalisation Monologues consists of two linked short plays.

In, 'The Special Friend', Mark moves from 1980s London to rural Ireland for love, but when tragedy strikes, finds he basically has no rights.

Whilst in, 'I Know What You Are', Moira finds her career threatened by blackmail. Does she just submit to it? Or fight back.

Funny, sad, angry and inspiring, these stories chart the struggles and challenges for gay and lesbian people in Ireland, at a time when to be gay was to be a criminal.
