    "Grills is a new word I learned yesterday. It's a substitute for girls and I much prefer it."

    From 1987 to 1995, Euston was home to the Camden Lesbian Centre and Black Lesbian Group. So why have we never heard of it? Funding cuts closed the centre, then closed its archive, moving it 345 miles away to Glasgow.

    60% of London’s queer spaces have closed in the past decade. Camden Borough’s free spaces - essential for marginalised groups as places to gather and share - have been decimated by fires, mandatory pricing and gates.

    GRILLS is a theatre production and interactive installation that explores the ground-breaking work of the UK's only dedicated Lesbian centre through archives; imagined relationships, real protests, and the palpable queer joy unearthed from found artefacts. 

    It asks: What are we missing by being unable to gather freely? What happens when our cultural memory is over 300 miles away? And how do we truly progress when we struggle to connect with our elders? 

    GRILLS is a Mirrorball and Camden People's Theatre co-production, supported by Camden Council and Art's Council England. It was the inaugural recipient of the 2022 Camden NoW! Commission from CPT and Old Diorama Arts Centre (funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation).

    "One of the most original and entertaining shows at Vault Festival"
    The Upcoming (on Without That Certain Thing)
    "A brilliantly black humour exploration of unrequited love in all its different irrepressible forms."
    North West End (on Without That Certain Thing)
    "Cleverly laced with double shots of wit and humour – this is an eminently watchable play."
    Close Up Culture (on Without That Certain Thing)
    "A smart, fast-talking comedy thriller that ticks all the right boxes... this dark film noir sparkles. 4.5 Stars"
    Reviews Hub (on Without That Certain Thing)
