BUTTERFLY is a new play opening at Bristol’s The Loco Klub, about a band of queer misfits who said no when the world threatened to push their voices deeper underground. From a drag queen fighting in World War I, to the radical lesbian ‘menaces’ of the 70’s, these stories establish a sense of community from across time. Performed in Bristol’s subterranean network of tunnels The Loco Klub, the play surrounds those who said no to having their stories suppressed. The stories range from loud-and-proud activism, to the individual acts of defiance, told boldly through monologue, dance and music. From suppression to liberation, anger to joy, the tragic to the comic, BUTTERFLY is a cacophony of passion, love and rebellion.
