Bechdel Theatre is a Community Interest Company born from a twitter account I started in 2015 inspired by the Bechdel Test and work of Alison Bechdel.
Now co-run by me and Pippa Sa, Bechdel Theatre exists to support, amplify and connect people of marginalised genders in and through the performing arts.
Bechdel Theatre activities include audience engagement, performance events, social media, podcasting, blogging, stickers, and creative workshops.

I perform as drag king Dan Load. Dan is a Kingspirational hype-man. His acts involve comedy, lip-sync and audience-participation, and he's a dangerously enthusiastic cabaret host.
Dan's performed at venues, festivals and nights including: Edinburgh Fringe, DIY Space, VAULT Festival, Omnibus Theatre, The Mighty Hoopla, The Southbank Centre, Camden People's Theatre, Lezfest Kennington, Boyznite in London and Oxford, Aberration at Aberystwth Arts Centre, L Fest Llandudno, and hosted the cabaret stage at the UK's first ever Bi Pride.
📺 Watch Dan Load at The RVT.
I host Queer Diary events where LGBTQ+ adults re-connect with their younger-selves by sharing extracts from their teenage diaries (and other writing) for a friendly queer audience, in the spirit of nostalgia, celebration, and queer solidarity.

Crocus is a new show I'm currently working on.
Two self-declared “screaming fangirls” meet on a fan-forum in 2002. Over 15 years they stay in touch via changing online platforms, from forums, to Myspace, to Instagram. Despite only meeting a handful of times IRL, their friendship endures and deepens far beyond the shared fandom of a rock band they quickly grow out of.
Find out more about Crocus.
