1960's Stonewall Riots coming to The Bay Theatre

17 voices presents ‘Crossing the Line’, the final performance from the level 3 BTEC Performing Arts students in 2016, here at Weymouth College.

It's June 1969 in New York. As a LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) person you would risk arrest if you; 

1. Bought alcohol in a bar
2. Danced publicly with a member of the same sex
3. Wore less than 3 items of attire associated with the gender in which you were born.

Told through the eyes of Joshua, a young gay man struggling to find acceptance in a disapproving society, we bring you an adaptation of the true story of The Stonewall Inn. Inspired by real life accounts the company celebrate the ultimately uplifting story of where Gay Pride began. March with us as we cross the line!

Some material will contain scenes of a sexual nature. There will also be a depiction of a real life riot that a younger audience may find distressing. Please contact the box office for further information if booking for under 12s.

£8.00 or £6.00 concession 

Wednesday 25th May at 7.30pm
Thursday 26th May at 1.00pm and 7.30pm
