Alexis Gregory talks about performing RIOT ACT at Crazy Coqs on Dec 1st to mark WORLD AIDS DAY

Alexis Gregory’s solo verbatim show, RIOT ACT was created entirely word for word out of interviews with three key-players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement; Michael-Anthony Nozzi; a survivor of the Stonewall Riots, Lavina Co-op, an alternative ‘70s drag artist, and Paul Burston; a prominent ‘90s London AIDS activist. Riot Act’ is a breathtaking, rip-roaring, white-knuckle ride through six decades of queer history, taking the audience right up to the present day; a celebration of queer activism across the decades, pulling no punches; hard-hitting, hilarious and inspiring…it’s a riot. After performing the show over the past five years Alexis Gregory reunited with QUEERGURU and talked with Roger Walker-Dack about a special upcoming performance of Riot Act at Crazy Coqs in London on December 1st 2022 to mark World Aids Day

Queerguru first met London-based queer playwright, performer, director and producer. ALEXIS GREGORY some years back when he wrote and starred in SEX/CRIME some five years ago. Since that interview, Queerguru has become both a fan of his work and his friend. We were more than happy to be able to report on his outstanding success with RIOT ACT his remarkable verbatim show, created entirely word for word out of interviews with three key players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.

Now Gregory is back in our sights again with his latest performance piece FUTURE PIECE which he is bringing to Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel for two nights only later this month. Queerguru’s Contributing Editor Ris Fatah will be in the audience to review the piece but meanwhile, Queerguru Editor In Chief filmed a Zoom interview with Gregory to talk about what we can expect from his look into the future

Brit Playwright and performer Alexis Gregory talks about Riot Act, a powerful, brand new verbatim theatre piece, created especially for the King’s Head Theatre‘s Queer Season in London, which will premiere Tuesday 31 July – Sunday 5 August.

Gregory interviewed one of the only remaining Stonewall survivors – the 1969 NYC riot that kick stared the gay rights movement; a member of a 1970’s London radical-drag troupe- underground alternative performance icon Lavinia Co-Op; and prominent 90’s London ACT UP AIDS activist Paul Burston. All three men spoke about their lives then and their lives now. Riot Act is shaped entirely, word for word, out of these interviews.

This interview with Roger Walker-Dack for www.queergurutv.com was filmed via Facetime
