Safe

Written by Alexis Gregory

Directed by Annie Kershaw

Co Producer A Girl Called Stephen Theatre

A recent study found that 25% of UK homeless and at-risk young people identify as LGBT.

Safe is a powerful verbatim theatre piece exploring these often untold stories. These are tales of sexuality, gender, childhood, identity, family, religion, race and addiction. A humour-filled exploration and celebration of what it means to feel truly safe in today’s world.

Safe was created out of interviews with four Albert Kennedy Trust service users.

The Albert Kennedy Trust supports homeless and at risk LGBTQ+ youth.

To further discussions inspired from the play, there will be a post-show Q&A session following the performance of Safe on Tuesday 2ndJuly. Representatives from homeless charities and LGTBQIA+ associations will speak on the subject of ‘Safe Spaces: Combatting LGBTQIA+ homelessness’.
