WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A Life in Three Acts is a living, breathing history edited and adapted from a series of private conversations between two friends, recreated on stage, reminiscing about the life and times of Bette Bourne. The performance is remarkably honest, and by turns humorous and angry. The story moves from Bourne's post-war childhood to his first walk across Trafalgar Square in drag, accompanied by four gorgeous friends, to his seminal role in the formation of the Gay Liberation Front. He recalls his life in a drag commune, the creation of the groundbreaking BLOOLIPS company in London and New York, and more, to reveal an extraordinary portrait of an individual and a movement. To be sure, this work is not only a Bourne memoir, but, more broadly, a celebration of the momentous struggles and achievements of gay liberation.
