Nominated for an Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award

“Punchy, lucid and moving… Highly recommended.” Guardian

“Highly recommended is Outings at the Gilded Balloon, a show created from coming out stories. It covers the whole gamut, from the excruciatingly awkward to the moving and beautiful.” The Guardian Edinburgh Festival Diary

“An impressive production…  it was the accumulated weight of confession that made Outings powerful.” Observer

Outings is an intricately woven tapestry of stories that creates a colourful picture of humanity.” **** Broadway Baby

Few comings-out attract millions of YouTube views like Tom Daley’s did. But for whoever’s saying ‘I’m gay’, it’s a life-changing moment. This new show, which premiered at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, explores true-life stories with a cast of star actors and comedians.
