It’s all about being out and going out... isn’t it?
This one person show invites audiences to a queer night in alone & delivers the expert’s guide to making the most of herbal tea, biscuits & wellbeing.
The work explores the creation of Mark's sexual & gender identity & anxiety whilst interacting with the straight and gay communities. It questions why staying inside feels like the only place Mark fits in.
It’s a humorous and vulnerable look at a side of ourselves rarely spoken about.
Staying In previewed as part of an R&D period and later became the show Spilling The Tea.
R&D supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Staying In was co-commissioned by hÅb, STUN + Contact for Works Ahead 2019.
Developed and supported by a grant from Superbia at Manchester Pride & Creative industries Trafford.
