About the festival

When did you come out as male?

Or female?

For Come As You Are, CPT welcomes a host of gender-anarchists with more questions than answers, as we confront (and solve?) all the world’s issues regarding female, male, between and beyond.

It’s not going to be pretty - but it might just be beautiful.

In the last few years, progressive thinking about gender has gone mainstream, and understanding has developed of gender as infinite variety.

More and more individuals are reclaiming the right to define their genders, their bodies, their selves.

Some have called this “the ultimate forum for self-expression”, some “the next civil rights frontier”.

Either way, it’s a destabilising and liberating cultural change.

Come As You Are will feature work by the UK's most exciting theatre artists.

The headliner will be Milk Presents' major new show Bullish, recipient of CPT’s inaugural Home Run commission (supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation).

Recent CPT themed festivals (e.g. Calm Down, Dear festival of feminism; Whose London Is It Anyway? festival exploring the housing crisis) featured work by Louise Orwin, Sh!t Theatre, Chris Goode, Fuel Theatre, Coney, Annie Siddons and others.


Starts:Tuesday 12 September 2017
