Lads & Lasses marks the second of ApposArt Theatre Company’s major 2017 productions. Commissioned by Pride in Hull, they are the first ever theatre production at the first ever UK Pride as part of the Hull City of Culture 2017 Creative Communities Programme. A world premiere combining theatre and film at the first ever UK Pride – there’s something for everybody, no labels necessary!
When Sam and Violet neglect their A-Level studies, they receive an unexpected punishment – to ‘supervise’ new student, Jake. But there’s more to this quiet new boy than meets the eye and pretty soon, uncertainty and insecurity appear to take advantage of the situation.
A poignant play dissecting what it means to be a young LGBT person, looking into the struggles and questions young people ask themselves about their identity and how this affects those around them. Based on real-life, local stories, Lads & Lasses promises to provide a thought-provoking but cheerily brilliant night of entertainment, full of emotion, love-making and good ol’ nostalgia! Who said growing up was easy?
Bring your friends, a box of tissues and an open mind! Early booking is advised.
The production contains some strong language and mild adult themes. Young people welcome, admitted with parents.
Monday 24 July’s performance is ‘Pay What You Can’.
