A Life In Three Acts

Bette Bourne is a living legend. I remember going to see her and her company in outrageous plays in the 1970s. It was the time of the Gay Liberation Front, and she lived in a drag commune at the time. The plays defied description, and the costumes were almost beyond belief. Yes, that’s a gay whale in the second photo…

Now Mark Ravenhill has collaborated with the person behind the persona to bring her life to the stage in A Life In Three Acts. It’s opening at the Edinburgh Festival, of course, but wonder of wonders, I see that it’s also coming to The Hague. I shall book my ticket forthwith.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
