The Pride Plays, Scotland's first ever LGBTQI+ playwright festival, returns following last year's success.

As part of LGBT History Month Scotland, they're back, continuing to give the stage to voices of a community who still feels underrepresented in Scottish theatre.

Two evenings with two different plays per night followed by a post-show discussion led by the director, playwright and public figure. On the first evening (Fri 14 Feb), we welcome plays by Natalie McGrath and Katie Gartlan-Close.

We'll Meet In Moscow
by Natalie McGrath

“You have woken me up. You have shaken me up.”

A butch tells us a love story. It’s her story. It’s dizzying and its dangerous and it spans a hundred years. It’s a story about hope and resistance, the distances we travel, and the lengths we go to when falling in love.

Cocoon by Katie Gartlan-Close
As their train hurtles from Vancouver to Seattle, Randy and Sophie are confronted with the facts and fantasies of their failed attempts to have a baby. When Randy finds a possible solution to all of their problems everything changes, but at what cost?

This show is taking part in our £1 Tickets project.
