To mark 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, the NT looks at how theatre has charted the LGBT+ experience through a series of rehearsed readings, exhibitions, talks and screenings.
6 – 10 July
To celebrate Pride weekend a world-class group of directors and actors bring seminal queer plays back to the stage in an act of celebration and remembrance.
