The Burnley Buggers’ Ball & Burnley’s Lesbian Liberator
Sat 25 February, 12.00pm – 1.15pm & 2.00pm – 3.15pm, Burnley Central Library
In the 1970s, Burnley was the UK’s battleground for gay and lesbian rights. Who knew?! To mark the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act (1967), LGBT History Month has commissioned two brilliant new dramas from Inkbrew Production to rediscover this amazing forgotten history. The Burnley Buggers’ Ball, by Stephen M Hornby, tells the story of a transformative political meeting held at Burnley Central Library. Burnley’s Lesbian Liberator,by Abi Hynes, dramatises the political activism of a bus driver sacked for nothing more than wearing a badge. Both plays are vividly staged in the sites where the original events happened.
