The Decriminalisation Monologues
Winner of the National GALA Award 2020. Nominated for Best New Play: Brighton Fringe, Prague Fringe, Manchester Fringe
Moira, an ambitious young civil servant in 1970s Dublin, is forced to confront being blackmailed at work for who she is. Does she just submit to it, or fight back and risk everything that she’s worked for?
Mark moves, very reluctantly, from London to rural Ireland to live with his Irish boyfriend where they start up a gay-friendly guesthouse and is surprised when it becomes a big success.
But it’s the 1980s, gay men are dropping like flies, and when tragedy strikes he is forced to confront a family that would prefer that he didn’t exist.
Sad, funny, angry and resilient. This award-winning play tells the stories of ordinary people who had the courage and bravery to take on a society that viewed them as criminals.
