Originally performed at VAULT Festival 2020, it was nominated for Show of the Week, and Lyn Gardner wrote that it was "written with vim and delicacy".

 

Thanks to support from Arts Council England we have adapted the show so that it has become an interactive - online performance rehearsed, recorded and experienced via zoom.

“recognising excellence in shows presented online”

Alex, is attempting their first ever stand up gig - but thanks to COVID-19 they’re gonna have to do it via zoom. Featuring a mixture of live comedy and pre-recorded theatrical scenes, this “terrific piece of drama” which is “quietly affecting” showcases a bold new way of moving theatre online.

 

“Pushing the boundaries of theatrical experiences by cleverly interacting with the audience. Companies like this are setting the benchmark of what is possible”

“Beige Online completely blew me away, going in to it I wasn't too sure what to expect from a ZOOM performance but the team exceeded my expectations! The creativity that went into working out how to do camera angles over zoom was incredible to see and the writing made my queer heart so whole!! All round it was just stunning!” - Jacob Edward, Gaydio Manchester
