Scorch by Stacey Gregg is inspired by recent court cases dealing with gender fraud and gender politics.

A story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen, Scorch examines how the human story often gets lost amidst the headlines.

This play is a new original work from Belfast playwright Stacey Gregg. It confronts ideological norms, which have for so long shaped our understanding and beliefs surrounding sexuality and gender.

Set in the round, Scorch explores the story of a teenager called Kes who is struggling with their gender identity. Kes explores their sexuality and gender by presenting as a boy who embarks on an intimate relationship with another girl, which leads to devastating effects both legally and personally.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
