Joyce Branagh / OutStageUs


The superb JOYCE BRANAGH opens tonight in OutStageUs, 12 brilliant short plays from LGBTQ+ writers, playing at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre 29 Sep – 2 October. Joyce will be performing in Diane Online by Sarah Hayton.

Hive North are proud to present twelve electrifying brand new short plays and spoken word pieces by some of the UK’s most exciting LGBTQ+ writers.

This year’s OutStageUs is an adventurous celebration of theatre addressing and exploring issues of sexuality and gender identity.

Created and performed by LGBTQ+ artists, these twelve scripts break down barriers and give an authentic voice to a community still fighting for equality.

OutStageUs is an inspiring annual event celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and its rich history of defiance and activism in the face of adversity. This collection of funny, moving, and inspiring new writing will give our community strength, optimism, and a voice.
