    Produced by Shift with support from Traverse Theatre

    Come and join Shift for the Pride Plays, Scotland's first ever LGBTQI+ playwright festival - three evenings of originally written plays by LGBTQI+ writers, as part of LGBT History Month Scotland 2019.

    Pride Plays are giving the stage to voices of a community who currently feel under represented in Scottish theatre.

    Each play will be performed as a rehearsed reading, with two plays per night followed by a post-show discussion led by the director and playwright. The playwrights have had development time and support from Laurie Motherwell and LGBTQI+ organisations.
