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.

Repeal the 8th: Maser's Mural Reinstalled at Project Arts Centre

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…
