The Pride Edition - Saturday 15th February
Team LGBTQIA* unite! Queerly beloved, our first offering of the year is as gay as they come. We’ll be spilling the tea with luscious lesbian literature, soaking in sapphic seduction, hitting up the homosexual agenda, and breaking down the stone walls. Come on bi.
We’ve gathered the pride of Wellington for this one. Starring:
Let’s have a gay old time!
Naked Boys Reading - 8:00pm, Saturday 25th April 2020
Boys will be boys. Or will they? We’re deconstructing traditional toxic masculinity and challenging the social norms. There’s no need to “man up”, we’ll be expressing all the emotions, exploring the gender spectrum, and raising up the guys to be exactly who they are.
The Dystopian Edition - 8:00pm, Saturday 27th June 2020
It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we feel fine? If the future feels bleak, fear not, we’re here for you. We’ll be looking for a Brave New World, taking a sideways glance at Big Brother, raising the temperature to Fahrenheit 451, and it’ll all come together like (A) clockwork (orange).
The Romance Edition - 8:00pm, Saturday 29th August 2020
Can you feel the love tonight? We know your hearts have been yearning for this and, because we’re hopelessly devoted to you, we’re giving you the one that you want. We’re going to woo you with our words, court you with our concepts of companionship, and delight you with divine daydreams of intimacy and affection. Write it in The Notebook and don’t miss the date.
The Deadly Edition - 8:00pm, Saturday 24th October
The female of the species is more deadly than the male. Our finale for the year will leave you shaking and quaking. You’ll be slayed by our selection, perturbed by our poison pens, and destroyed by our dark arts. It’s going to be killer.
And it's not just for the ladies! Our events are open to everyone, from all walks of life, of all genders, all sexualities, all everything. Come along.
Please note: seating is not allocated so arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Latecomers may not be admitted, and door sales are cash only. If you have any accessibility concerns, please get in touch well in advance of any event so we can best help you out.
