R loves X… J wants R… F adores J… E longs for F… How can anyone live within the constraints of a society that can at best misunderstand them, at worst, only condemn?
One of the first plays to depict lesbianism on Broadway, Edouard Bourdet‘s La Prisonnière ignited a scandal in 1927, prompting new laws against obscenity and the arrest of the entire company.
Now, 90 years on, Arcola Queer Collective presents a radical reimagining of this landmark play following their sold-out productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Little Prince.
Enter the world of The X for a provocative tale of romance, sexuality and societal submission, directed by international cabaret and queerlesque star Rubyyy Jones.
