The Butch Monologues at Gerry's Studio Stratford East from Wed 8 to Fri 10 Nov at 7.30pm


Written by Laura Bridgman  Directed by Julie McNamara

Following sell-out performances to international festivals and theatres including La Mama and Abrons Arts Center, NYC and WOW festival in London, The Butch Monologues tours again in November.

A powerful and often humorous collection of secret stories exploring sexuality, vulnerability and desire taken from interviews with butches, masculine women, gender rebels and transmen, living world-wide.

“An excellent piece of theatre and more than that, it’s a very tangible vehicle for social change.” Jude Kelly CBE, (Artistic Director, Southbank)

Succeeds in making us all feel loved.” Lois Weaver, Split Britches
