OUTINGS, the world’s first show based on coming-out stories premiered to huge acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, and has since delighted audiences on tour around the UK. This powerful, funny and confessional collation of over 20 true-life tales was created by award-winning writers following an online campaign for submissions that was supported by Stephen Fry amongst many others. Inspired by recent high-profile ‘comings out’ by stars of stage, screen and sports, the show celebrates the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from around the world, exploring how they came out and what effect it has had on them. The press on OUTINGS:
‘Punchy, lucid and moving… Highly recommended.’ The Guardian
‘An impressive production… Extraordinary.’ The Observer
‘Life-affirming’ The Arts Desk
