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.
