Welcome to the home of Green Carnation COMPANY, telling QUEER STORIES THROUGH quality THEATRE.
We are a Manchester based theatre company dedicated to producing high-quality professional theatrical productions and digital work that address contemporary issues affecting the queer and LGBTQ+ community.
QUEER ALL ABOUT IT is a celebration of diverse queer stories and new perspectives through four powerful and moving short films by four emerging LGBTQ+ writers.
A sister remembers a fateful family game of UNO and an argument that can’t be taken back; a new father has the first day of school nerves; a woman must prove the thing she has had to hide to save herself; a prodigal son returns home for a family wedding, ready to reveal their true self.
Green Carnation Company explore topics of HIV, fatherhood, asylum seekers, gender and faith in four monologues by emerging LGBTQ+ writers that shine a light on diverse LGBTQ+ experiences. Working with film-makers Bloody Bandit Production and local performers, we have brought these stories to life through four powerful and moving short films.
Watch the films below:
Each film is accompanied by a short talking heads interview film featuring interviews with LGBTQ+ individuals and charity representatives, responding to the topics explored within the monologue.
