It is looking for creatives who can work with academics to create historical drama to be performed at LGBT History Month festivals across the UK.
Stephen Hornby, LGBT History Month’s National Festival Theatre co-ordinator, says: “We’re building up a catalogue of unique LGBT+ historical drama that we’ve either directly commissioned, brokered or supported the development of.
“Our focus is on taking the stories of ordinary people’s lives, or the events that they become a part of, and dramatising them in a historically literate way, uncovering forgotten LGBT history.
“We want Festival Theatre to represent the full panoply of LGBT+ and the full geography of the UK. So, we are creating a mechanism for you to register people or events with us for consideration for future dramatisation.
“All you have to do is complete a short form and we’ll start to build up a bank of potential material for creatives to dramatise and of historical advisers to work with them.”
