HASBIAN & QUEER DIARY DOUBLE BILL

#96FEST2020
An autobiographical comedy about coming out as a teenage lesbian, only to discover that boys are also attractive.

Important information: We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the scheduled performances of this event. If you are an affected ticket holder we will be in touch soon. Please subscribe to our newsletter or check our social media for further updates. Find out more here.

Hasbian: noun 

A former lesbian who has ‘become’ heterosexual or bisexual. 

An autobiographical comedy about coming out as a lesbian, only to discover that boys are also appealing. 

Hasbian uses real teenage diaries, music, and high-school movie actors from 2001-3 to tell a story of growing up in Brighton (the UK’s Gay Capital) under Section 28 (a 1988 – 2003 law prohibiting the “teaching of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”). 

Dripping in equal measures with heartfelt earnestness, sharp irony, and humour that bubbles up in the place between youthful confidence and pubescent self-doubt, Hasbian will fill Millennials with buzzy nostalgia, while exposing insidious queerphobia that exists in even the most self-consciously liberal of cities. 

Tickets to this performance will include entry to Queer Diary – a night excavating and celebrating queer teenage experiences with diary readings, poetry, fanfiction, and artwork, with a nostalgic musical soundtrack compiled by participants from across the LGBTQ+ community.
