Over the next two years Theatre in the Mill are delighted to be working in partnership with the Marlborough Theatre Brighton, a
venue who work year round with LGBTQ+ practitioners to support and present extraordinary performance by pioneering artists.

New Queers on the Block is a new touring scheme showcasing some of the artists they work with in a celebration of all things queer. The night will feature some of the finest international queer work from Rachael Young, Hester Chillingworth, Stacy Makishi & Marikiscrycrycry, hosted by Ophelia Bitz. Plus, in each town they visit, there will be a local LGBTQ+ artist joining the ranks.

Expect shows about being a queer black woman channelling the power of Grace Jones, memories of a queer childhood, reclaiming your faith with the help of pop music, and black melancholy through the legacy of Tupac.

We will shortly be announcing an exciting local guest performer who will join the line-up, so keep an eye on social media for updates.
