Description

'But the terror wasn't about what I was being accused of, the terror was what I could get done for...' Through a series of verbatim monologues, Prefer Not To Say recalls the gripping testimonies of real-life people within the LGBTQ+ community. Through these first-hand accounts you are taken on a journey of liberation, strength and empowerment, exploring sexuality and the struggle that we face in today’s prejudicial society.

Compelling, compassionate and beautifully presented by a wonderful ensemble, Prefer Not to Say may seem to speak specifically to the LBGQT community, no such thing: the issues raised here, speak to all aspects of humanity. Verbatim, didactic theatre at its best, for the brain and for the soul. My wife and I laughed and cried and left the theatre feeling thoroughly uplifted. Thank you Riot Road Theatre.

I hope this show get even more traction and more people get to see and hear these stories. Please go see this show.
