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.
