Manchester Pride Celebrates with Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens
Inspired by the NAMES Project Memorial Quilt, 'Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens' is an immensely powerful musical written to involve the community in a theatrical response to the AIDS crisis from the early 1980's to the present day. Told through a spectrum of individuals who are living with or have suffered from HIV/AIDS, they address loss of life and celebrate spirit, love and support through humour, song, rage and hope. Elegies applauds and reflects on some important lives, generating a feeling of love, humanity and common cause that will send you out glowing.
The production will be supporting the work of HIV charity George House Trust, through association with Manchester Pride this year. The show runs nightly at 7:15pm on the 20th-24th August at Joshua Brooks and you can get a ticket to see this rarely performed gem of a show for just £8 (in advance) from www.sidebysideproductions.ticketsource.co.uk
