Life In Three Acts, A

Life In Three Acts, A
With honesty, humour and occasional anger, performer Bette Bourne tells the playwright Mark Ravenhill about his life. the story moves from a post-war childhood, to the Gay Liberation Front, life in a drag commune and on to the creation of the ground-breaking Bloolips company and beyond. the piece, in three parts, marks a different series of events in Bette's life to reveal a portrait of an amazing individual and celebration of the momentous struggles and achievements of gay liberation. each part can be enjoyed as self-contained stories or seen together for a fuller picture. the performance is a reading of edited transcripts of a series of long, private conversations, a recreation on stage of two friends reminiscing about one of their lives. 'Bette' and 'mark' will be played by the real individuals. But at some performances guest artists will recreate the original conversations, finding their own path through the extraordinary life of Bette Bourne.
