A Queer Cȇilí at the Marty Forsythe

Kabosh presents an exciting new production exploring the turbulent events of the first National Union of Students Lesbian and Gay Conference, held at Queens University Belfast in 1983.

Met by large-scale protest from the ‘Save Ulster From Sodomy’ crusade, and mounting tensions within the NUS Executive, delegates were in danger of receiving anything but a warm Irish welcome.

That was all about to change…

Delegates were offered an invitation from the community in West Belfast to join them at the Martin Forsythe Social Club in Turf Lodge, an invitation that was eagerly accepted.

Set against the soundscape of 1983 Belfast: the escalating Troubles; vocal and violent opposition to homosexuality; and a thriving punk scene, A Queer Céilí at the Marty Forsythe looks at a unique chapter in Belfast’s history and celebrates commonality and camaraderie in the face of adversity. The world premiere of this production will take place in the Trinity Lodge, formerly The Marty Forsythe where the 1983 céilí was held.

Trinity Lodge, Monagh Grove
Wednesday 27th – Saturday 30th March | 8pm Tickets £12 / £10
The performance on Saturday 30th March will be followed by a traditional céilí
