So far, we've performed parts of our new show - Queer Lady M - at scratch nights in Derby, Oxford, London and Nottingham to try them out in front of audiences.

We'd really appreciate your thoughts on the recorded livestreams from London and Nottingham below.

Both videos are fully captioned. Please note that, due to the footage being captured on a smartphone, resolution is low.

LONDON SCRATCH

An early version of the opening of the show, this scratch took place at the Pleasance Theatre in June 2018.

Our questions to you are:

  • What do you think works well, and what could be better in the next version of the piece?
  • How successful is the piece in terms of its pacing and audience engagement?
  • Who do you think would be interested in coming to the show when it's finished?
  • To what extent do you feel the show is about trans identity?

NOTTINGHAM SCRATCH

This scratch starts about 20 minutes into the show. It took place at Nottingham Playhouse as part of Theatre Pride in July 2018.

Our questions to you are:

  • Is the title appropriate in relation to the content of the piece?
  • How would you describe the show to a friend, family member or colleague?
  • In what kind of venues and at what kind of events do you think the show should be performed?
  • Do you have any questions for us about the story, characterisation or anything else?

Queer Lady M brings together devised performance, Shakespeare and drag while exploring the real-life experiences of working-class, gender-fluid artist Shane Gabriel. 

After a successful R&D phase last year, 1623 is making and scratching Queer Lady M this year, before touring the show in 2019
