About this event

An entertaining collection of monologues reflecting the experiences of older LGBT+ people from Birmingham, reflecting and celebrating the progress this generation was responsible for.

Developed from research, the piece looks back to the past, at how things were for people coming out, going out, at work and with family; drawing connections with their experiences now.

The performance will be followed by a discussion facilitated by W&T’s Artistic Director Janice Connolly (aka Mrs Barbara Nice) which make connections with the experiences of younger LGBT+ people today.

Looking Back, Moving Forwards was originally commissioned by Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust in 2019.

Researched & written by Hannah Graham.

The event will take place at The Loft Lounge on 14th November 2021 between 1 pm and 2:30 pm.

Booking in advance is essential.

About Women & Theatre:

Women & Theatre is a female-led charity with a values-driven ethos. Our artistic and operational methodology is grounded in an open, collaborative and solution-focussed philosophy. Our focus is not limited to women’s experiences and we work with a wide cross section of the community on a range of issues.

We create vibrant theatre that explores the human condition and issues affecting people’s wellbeing in contemporary society. We have a strong track record for developing partnership projects across arts, health, education & community sectors, which achieve measurable outcomes for participants and the wider community. We address the big questions of the day and challenge inequality through giving voice to those under represented or unheard. We develop theatre from research, respecting individual human stories, making our work truly relevant and resonant for audiences.

We make deep work about things that matter.

About SHOUT Festival:

SHOUT is the festival of queer arts and culture for Birmingham and the West Midlands. It aims to amplify the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people and communities from across our city and region, and start new conversations and tell new stories about LGBTQ+ life. SHOUT Festival was created by Birmingham LGBT, a grassroots organisation that lies at the heart of a kaleidoscope of dozens of community groups and networks, and delivers a vast range of support services for LGBT+ people – which puts SHOUT Festival directly in touch with the lived experience of queer communities across the city.

About BEDLAM Arts and Mental Health Festival:

1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year. In England, 1 in 6 people experience a common mental health problem (such as anxiety or depression) each week. So whether you’ve experienced this, or know someone who has, you’re not alone. It’s vital to share your stories – and taking part in the arts is a natural way to do so.

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, together with Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Midlands Arts Centre, Sampad South Asian Arts and our guest partner Red Earth Collective, are thrilled to bring you a diverse ​programme of world premieres, visual art and film as well as powerful live performance through theatre, spoken word, dance and music.

Now on our fifth edition, we hope that BEDLAM continues to reduce stigma, and encourages honest discussions around mental health – all with some fantastic performances. Whatever your age or background, there’s something for everyone. Follow the conversation online @BEDLAM_festival and using #BEDLAM2021 We look forward to seeing you there.
