Grin Theatre Company, LGBTQ Theatre for Liverpool and the North West, is excited to bring a double bill of new, outstanding one-act plays to Liverpool John Moores University: Mexico (The Writer’s Cut) by Wes Williams & He Said, He Said by Steve Trainor.
Mexico (The Writer’s Cut) by Wes Williams is a dark and disturbing play about family relationships which highlight many issues including sexuality, mental health, and family bonds. Originally staged 5 years ago, the writer and the company have revisited this piece and brought it up-to-date, shedding new light on the characters and their motives. It is a chilling exploration of how a family can fracture and maybe find time to heal itself. A play with many layers and a sting in its tail.
Audiences have called it “deeply unsettling, stark, and moving…”
He Said, He Said by Steve Trainor receives its UK premiere prior to filming and UK tour – a powerful and dark journey into a tormented gay relationship that leads to the ultimate betrayal. Featuring scenes that may upset some people; this is one play not to be missed, with towering performances from an exciting and energetic cast. A play that looks at control and the significance of social media upon gay relationships. It is a stark, raw, and emotional journey throughout.
Both performances feature mature themes and therefore are not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
Join us for this brand new and exciting double bill of theatre from Grin Theatre at John Moores University, Art and Design Auditorium 3rd & 4th October 7pm.
Tickets from News from Nowhere OR on the door – £8.
