Happening as part of PUSH Festival 2021 at HOME Manchester, First Dibs: The Assembly is a script-in-hand sharing of five new plays written by LGBTQ+ playwrights and the culmination of Dibby Theatre’s first-ever First Dibs course.
First Dibs is a radical new 14-week play-making school led by LGBTQ+ artists, for LGBTQ+ artists.
The course has taken place as part of Dibby Theatre’s outreach and education programme supporting working-class and LGBTQ+ artists and communities.
We can reveal that the playwrights taking part in First Dibs: The Assembly are: mandla rae, Alma Renée Lipari, Susan Kerr, Elizabeth Gibson and Rebekka Platt. Witness their brand-new works in development.
