Green Carnation Projects

QUEER ALL ABOUT IT is Green Carnation’s ongoing digital project exploring themes with in our theatre projects and other issues that affect the LGBTQ+ community through film, articles and interviews.

Thanks to generous support from National Lottery and Arts Council England, we will be commissioning 4 new scripts as part of QUEER ALL ABOUT IT, each exploring specific themes within LGBTQ+ culture. These scripts will be developed and released as short films alongside informative videos discussing the themes explored.

Our QUEER ALL ABOUT IT commissions aim to showcase and develop new LGBTQ+ writing, and to explore and celebrate diverse LGBTQ+ experiences.


We are currently looking for script submissions for the third of our QUEER ALL ABOUT IT short film commissions – deadline Friday 14 August.

We are looking for writers to respond to the theme ‘Queers Beyond Borders’ exploring the experiences, journeys and lives of LGBTQ+ migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

My Night with Reg 2020 Tour

January 23 – March 12, 2020

In 2020 Green Carnation Company delivered their first successful Arts Council funded mid-scale tour with Kevin Elyot’s wonderfully human dark comedy ‘My Night with Reg‘.

Funny, sad and sweet, Kevin Elyot’s award-winning dark comedy play about the relationships of a group of gay men and their connections to the unseen yet magnetic Reg is a moving exploration of friendship, happiness and love, and their fragility in the shadow of the 1980’s AIDS crisis.

We toured this important and relevant play to five venues (The Lowry, Hull Truck Theatre, Lawrence Batley Theatre, Gala Theatre Durham, and Warwick Arts Centre) reaching over 2,000 audiences, receiving incredible responses from audience and press alike.
