The Trial by StoneCrabs Theatre

Part of Ventnor Fringe Festival 2019


Following their successful productions of “Busu & The Damask Drum” and “Tieta” at Quay Arts and Ventnor Fringe last year, StoneCrabs Theatre brings their interactive Brazilian show “The Trial” to the Ventnor Fringe 26-28 July 2019.

Tieta comes home to a small, conservative Brazilian village in search of justice – the audience will be the jury. Part stand-up, part gig, part storytelling The Trial is a dynamic and interactive piece of theatre that asks if we can reject authority in order to live an love in different ways.

Social and political struggles of LGBTQ+ community Loosely based on Jorge Amado’s 1970s novel, this new work presented at the Ventnor Fringe by StoneCrabs Theatre, is a timely expose of today’s social and political struggles of the LGBTQ+ community in Brazil and elsewhere.

At its heart is Tieta, a young person who was shunned and driven from their small town in the northeast of Brazil for being queer only to return as a trans woman asking for the townsfolk to find her justice.

The Trial takes place from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th July at 5pm each day at Hygeia House (former Central Hotel), 64 High Street, Ventnor PO38 1LT.
