Join Holly Gallagher in a story of Cosplay, Comic Conventions, and growing up on the Internet. She wants to share a story with you: a coming-of-age story, a love story, a horror story. A story about you.
The Teesside-born theatre maker and director presents Before (the line is lost) – a one woman show about Cosplay – an art form dedicated to creating costumes and dressing up as fictional characters – and growing up on the internet.
The play addresses the world of comic conventions and consent both in reality and online through storytelling, autobiographical experience, and verbatim materials gathered through interviews with people of varying ages, races, and genders from the UK, USA, and Canada.
Following a sell-out preview performance in August 2016, Before (the line is lost) is set to fascinate, inform, and challenge audiences over the course of the evening at Northern Stage’s newly refurbished Stage 3.
“joyous, angry, upsetting, inspirational work.” Alex Kelly (Third Angel)
After a decade of cosplaying, Holly can’t wait to welcome you into her world…
