“Cloudburst” (2012), dir Thom Fitzgerald. With Olympia Dukakis, Brenda Fricker and Ryan Doucette. An exhilarating, crazy older-dykes-on-the-run movie, as Stella (Dukakis) liberates her blind life partner Dot (Fricker) from an old people’s home where she’s been interred by Dot’s daughter. They flee to Canada to get married, in order to give Stella rights; on the way they pick up a male stripper (Doucette)... Something for absolutely everyone. This is a seriously good cult movie which will have you devastated by the end.
Open to all established and budding LGBT+ talent, dyke, faggot, bi, bi-curious, trans and all stations in between. Bring poems, bring songs, bring musical instruments from guitars to the spoons, bring magic tricks, tap-dancing, balloon animals - but above all, bring yourselves. Seize the moment, seize the mike, and something wonderful will happen, whether you're player or audience. Free admission. If you want, please contact organiser Peter Scott-Presland in advance to discuss your performing needs, at email@example.com
