How can LGBTQ+ elders live in care homes if they do not feel welcomed by residents or staff? What happens to their sense of identity if they don’t feel safe to invite their queer friends? Can they find a way of adapting to collective living arrangements without going back into the closet?
Our new show combines music and drama to bring up the lights on some of the least visible members of our community. With the support of the Albany and Arts Council England, we presented a work-in-progress preview as part of the Hatched programme of new writing in April 2018.
