Hasbian

Book Live Tickets

This venue has step-free access with wheelchair accessible and gender-neutral toilet facilities available.

Hasbian (noun): A former lesbian who has “become” bisexual or heterosexual.

An autobiographical comedy about coming out as a lesbian, only to discover that boys are also appealing.

Hasbian uses real teenage diaries, music, and teen-movie actors from the early 00s to tell a story of growing up queer in Brighton (the UK’s Gay Capital) under Section 28 (the 1988 – 2003 law prohibiting the “teaching of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”).

Dripping in equal measures with heartfelt earnestness, sharp irony, and humour that bubbles up in the place between youthful confidence and pubescent self-loathing, Hasbian will fill Millennial audiences with buzzy nostalgia, while exposing queerphobia in the most liberal of cities.

Members of Croydon and South London’s LGBTQ+ community are invited to attend this work-in-progress performance, and will be given the opportunity to offer anonymous feedback on the piece. Please note: this performance is an open dress-rehearsal.

The show will be followed by a relaxed social and networking event for queer creatives.

This performance will be testing new elements of captioning and creatively integrated audio description elements – these access features are work-in-progress still being developed, and we welcome any feedback on them.
