Pink Orchids, The HIV Monologues | Tues 10 July | Wardrobe Theatre, 715pm
Nominated Best Ensemble in the Off West End Awards, our first outing for the 2018 Pride Theatre Night double bill is the incredible Dragonflies Theatre production of Pink Orchids – The HIV Monologues.
This powerful and poignant piece tells the story of Alex who knows nothing about HIV. Nick is his Tinder date who’s just been diagnosed positive and is struggling with self-worth. Their date is going amazingly until Nick discloses his diagnosis… and Alex reacts in the worst way.
Through meeting Irene, an Irish nurse who treated AIDS in the 1980s, and Barney, who was saved by the 1996 medication, Alex gets on PrEP, but will he be able to win Nick back?
Dragonflies Theatre are dedicated to making challenging and thought-provoking work that reflects issues affecting the LGBT+ community. We thought it was important to bring this piece to Bristol and we are glad to be joined by Brigstowe and The THT who you will be able to talk to on the night.
