Merry Christmas, Ms Meadows is a theatrical homage to the eponymous trans* teacher who took their own life in the wake of relentless vilification by the UK’s tabloid press. From frenzied fetishisation to life-threatening demonisastion the production goes on to explore different aspects of gender identity and sexual orientation through the stories - past and present, both real and imagined - of LGBTQI people across the world.
“activist theatre gone right. Belarus Free Theatre combine urgency and innovative production design in a play that is both a thing of beauty and a convincing argument that issues of gender and sexuality deserve our continued attention”
