Triple Bill: A Sticky Season, Minor Disruptions and Crystal Bollix presents The Bitch Ball
A Sticky Season by Jack Donald.
Seasons come and seasons go, political tensions rise and fall, heat intensifies and dissipates and pressure mounts and mounts until it finally finds release.
Inspired by the lives of Joe Orton, a British Playwright living at the heart 60’s Britain, changing its attitudes towards homosexuality and Gaetan Dugas a Canadian flight attendant scapegoated for spreading AIDS within the vibrant party scene sprawling across America in the 70’s.
Through a queer language of live Jazz music and poetry influenced by ‘The Beat Generation’, this performance consumes and digests the stickiness of these histories from a contemporary queer perspective.
Minor Disruptions by Katie Paterson
A child's head revisited - why does everyone keep saying that childhood was a simpler time, full of innocence and happiness? Wasn't it just an endless well of chaos, boredom, frustration and impossible rules that nobody explained(shh).
This solo endurance test piles comedy and autobiography awkwardly on top of each other to excavate the queerness of a 'normal' childhood. Every show is a completely different experience, with a party atmosphere of riotous silliness and some very good natured audience participation - the only person at risk of humiliation is Katie, we promise!

Crystal Bollix gives us a fun and entertaining show that will have you smiling from ear to ear from start to finish and a fresh lesson in how to achieve your best "Bitch Realness". (Within Her Words)
A drag- cabaret party with lip-syncing extravaganza, live music and outfits to die for! (Could also use this quote)
“Donald's poetic writing dances through the air with elegance and sensuality and paints an image that is vivid and exciting. His gorgeous vocals are a pleasure to listen to and his open performance style and beat poetry made this unique show all the more entertaining.”
“Overall the show is a completely original one, that will tickle all human senses, as the smell of the citrusy fruit and the atmosphere of the room wraps the audience up in a tale of understanding and love.”
