A Turn of Phrase Production written and directed by Timothy Allsop

About this event

The Stars Are Brighter Here is a play by Timothy Allsop based on oral testimony from interviews with LGBTQIA+ people from across the UK. On a site-specific journey through different parts of the museum, you will get to meet modern and historical characters and hear some of their stories and experiences. The historical elements are mostly drawn from work done by Pride in Suffolk's Past and Broken Futures. The play will take place in both indoor and outdoor settings. From nineteenth century archaeologists to Betty's nightclub, this play will show you that there has always been a queer presence in the countryside. Directly after the play, there will be a screening of a documentary film. Please note that some of the names have been changed and some elements adapted to protect the anonymity of some of our participants.

Show duration: Approx. 55 minutes, Film duration 10-12 minutes

With thanks to Arts Council England, Queer Rural Connections, The MERL, Museum of East Anglian Life, Broken Futures, TORCH and Suffolk Archives.
