Synopsis


DANDELION is set in Margate in 1988, just after the introduction of Clause 28, which made 'the promotion of homosexuality' illegal in schools.


The play interlinks the two separate stories of student Claire and her teacher Ann and how they both deal with the fallout from Clause 28. With one discovering her sexuality for the first time, and the other having been in a committed homosexual relationship for two years, we see Claire & Ann learn to navigate a society that enforced silence, oppression and the denial of who are you.


DANDELION is the latest production from Paperclip Theatre. Marking 30 years since the introduction of Clause 28, DANDELION will explore queer history on stage, with Paperclip Theatre working to put the narrative of lesbian and bisexual women front and centre. This feminist theatre collective is made up of women who have found each other through a genuine passion to create theatre that tells stories which place women at the heart of their own narrative.
