The Stars Are Bright Here is a play by Timothy Allsop based on oral testimony from interviews with LGBTQIA+ people from across the UK. On a site-specific journey through different parts of the museum, you will get to meet modern and historical characters and hear some of their stories and experiences. The historical elements are mostly drawn from work done by Pride in Suffolk’s Past and Broken Futures. The play will take place in both indoor and outdoor settings. From nineteenth century archaeologists to Betty’s nightclub, this play will show you that there has always been a queer presence in the countryside.
