Background


ActDrop reviewed this show during its run at the King's Head Theatre in 2018 - read our 4 star review here.

Synopsis


Created from playwright and performer Alexis Gregory's interviews with Michael-Anthony Nozzi, one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors; Lavinia Co-op, a 1970s London radical-drag artist; and Paul Burston, a prominent 1990s AIDS activist, this solo verbatim piece is a breathtaking journey through six decades of queer history.


Arriving at Arcola after a sold-out West End performance, and ahead of a UK Tour, Riot Act honours the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots - with the 30th June performance marking the actual anniversary weekend.


It's going to be a riot!
