Coinciding with PRIDE month and at a time when Drag Artists face bans, Trans rights are under attack and hate crimes against LGBTQIA+ people are on the rise, this play documents the struggles of the past, memorialises queer love and celebrates the resilience of collective joy and profound self-expression.
In an act of defiance and radical self-expression, these bodies will inhabit the centre with pride. And send a love letter to all in the LGBTQIA+ community who have been and are still persecuted for choosing to fly…
From her childhood days during the Franco regime, playing in the dovecote of her family home, Marion dreams of a life without shame – despite being assigned the word “male” at birth.
In the underground sanctuaries of a hiding-but-thriving queer community, Marion begins to move out of the cages that have kept her true self confined.
With the love of a bruised but bright Drag star, Dorín Delacroix, Marion takes us into a place of light, memory, pain, communion, and celebration.
