A new bisexual play to showcase at VAULTS festival 2023. How We Begin is a hit play all about showing the complexities of a queer relationship. Opening on Valentine’s Day and running for only 7 performances, this heartfelt production tells the story of love, identity, and trying to find time to sleep with your best friend. It is sure to give lesbian audiences an entertaining evening!
So what is this new play all about?
It begins small. Pre-work coffee dates, stealing kisses in the dark, inconspicuous hand-holding – but things soon escalate, and Helen and Diana have to figure themselves out in the margins of the “perfect” lives they’ve created for themselves.
Written by Elisabeth Lewerenz, Directed by Elizabeth Benbow, and produced in collaboration with creative producer Antonia Georgieva, the production comes full circle and finally takes to the VAULT Festival stage in 2023 after last year’s postponement.
Director Elizabeth Benbow says – “This play proudly and powerfully showcases the joyful, sometimes messy facets of queer female love, which is often underrepresented or misrepresented in contemporary media. It brings me great joy to finally present this moving play to a larger audience and bring it back to where it all started.”
