We proudly bring you three specially created theatre pieces brought together to celebrate Bristol Pride Week. Taking over Old Market’s newest venue we are proud to support The Wardrobe Theatre, in the Old Market Assembly (formerly Flamingos Nightclub) as we use the arts to showcase our culture and community.
VENUS & ADONIS
“Love is a spirit all compact of fire, Not gross to sink, but light, and will aspire”
20:20 Vision explore LGBT+ themes in a special stage adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic poem. A story rife with love, lust, and forbidden passion; Venus and Adonis is Shakespeare’s most unabashedly sexy work and this is the first major stage adaption of the work in the UK for over a decade.
Adonis is a hunter unversed in the desires of the flesh, while Venus is an older temptress determined to ignite the young warrior’s sexual awakening. Utilising an all male company to explore themes of gender fluidity and social conditioning.
MUCH ADO ABOUT BINGO
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your Bingo Dabber! Back in the Elizabethan era, Shakespeare was considered to be the light-entertainment of the day. Fast-forward to the 20th Century and popular culture gave birth to BINGO!
You are invited to join Boogaloo Stu’s creation: ’70s telly host and crimplene-clad showbiz legend Derek Daniels for a sensationally silly Shakespearean round of retro musical bingo with scintillating conversation. Grab your bingo card and tick off the songs and quotes as you hear them, in a frantic bid to win the Full House and claim a prize.
Can 6 photos honestly reflect your personality? Does one gym selfie truly reveal the inner workings of your soul? #APPilyEverAfter explores our generation’s reliance on networking apps and how their integration has irrevocably changed our pursuit of happiness. Inspired by hook-up apps, dating sites and overbearing social expectations.
Pride present the creative talents of Josh ‘Jacobs’ & Paul ‘Dincent’, as they try ever-so-hard to seduce you through song, sketches and stand up – delving deep into the world of online dating and unravelling the trials and tribulations they adventure.
Tickets just £8 and after venue hire and event costs all money goes to support Pride.
