You western backed goats, They forced us into slavery and killed millions. Now they want us to accept the sinfulness of homos. It shall not work.

In 2014 Uganda passed an Anti-Homosexuality Act. This short startling play looks at what lies behind it.

Substantially based on material from Boy Wives and Female Husbands by Stephen O Murray and Will Roscoe.

Royal Court [Off West End]

“Taut, short exploration of the relationship between language and politics, thought and action... An essay for voices. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Churchill's new short, a swirling mass of quotations delivered by three actors, lands a knock-out blow... Elegant and succinct. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Spare, punchy play... Statements curl around each other like smoke... A compelling rhythmic beat... Angry and sorrowful. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Fragmentary shards of discourse... From the pixelated accretion of contradictory assertion, an image slowly emerges. ”

Jane Shilling (Telegraph)

“The cast reel off their quotes with an ironic glint in their eyes that steers the whole thing well clear of agitprop. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A sharp vision... Cooke’s production makes Churchill’s playlet feel like a cross between a spell and a dance... Striking. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Trenchant... Under Cooke’s sharp direction this terrific trio make each moment clear... The most beautiful affirmations. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“It’s very short... long enough, I mused, to tackle the question of why Africa is in denial about homosexuality on every level? ”

Ann Treneman (Times)
