JOCK TAMSON’S BAIRNS

Part drag, part interactive cabaret, Jock Tamson’s Bairns is a theatrical experience created by Civil Disobedience, which explores queer culture, growing up gay in the 1990s, and the bystander effect.

Set in an after-hours gay bar where the audience is invited to speak their mind, it mixes scripted elements of storytelling with live music performances and open space discussion. No topic is taboo, but a respect for your fellow humans is compulsory.
