After The Act

28 February – 1 April, 2023


A Section 28 musical.

Abseiling lesbians! Queers in classrooms! Perverts panicking parents! And an act of oppression that inspired a generational riot.

Twenty years after its repeal, the children of Section 28 are taking to the stage.

Multi-award-winning NDT Associates Breach (It's True, It's True, It's True) unpack a turning point in LGBTQ+ British history, singing and dancing over the grave of this national anniversary.

★★★★★ ‘The consistently exciting Breach Theatre’s new show feels uneasily current... given furious momentum’ Financial Times on It’s True, It’s True, It’s True

World premiere, commissioned by New Diorama. Co-produced by New Diorama, Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, HOME and Warwick Arts Centre. Supported by Arts Council England.
