Marlborough Theatre

Queer Connections

Marlborough Theatre, Brighton works year round with LGBTQ+ practitioners, supporting and presenting extraordinary performance by pioneering artists. It seeks to advance equality and to make Brighton & Hove an internationally important home for queer performance, influencing the national picture and advocating for LGBTQ+ artists.

Our support is for five artists who identify as LGBTQ+ from across the UK to participate in a 12 month development programme drawing on Marlborough Theatre's distinctive queer approach. The programme will offer skills development, mentoring and showcasing opportunities, however there will be no pressure or requirement to make a new piece of performance. Artists will be found through the theatre's network of grass-roots arts organisations.

The project will also expand Marlborough Theatre's national profile at this key moment of the company's development.
