Peter Tatchell and David Morrissey – you choose

Two big names get talking up in the Pool this Wednesday

Published on November 25th 2010.

Peter Tatchell and David Morrissey – you choose
ACTOR Dave Morrissey comes to his home city this week as part of Club Geek Chic's In Conversation.... series.

The event, which will include live musical performances of his favourite tunes from Ian Prowse and Sparkwood & 21, will take place in the Concert Room of St George’s Hall.

Dave was a member of the Everyman Youth Theatre before getting his big TV break in Willy Russell's One Summer. Whether by accident or design, he managed to swerve the early days of Brookside and ended up at RADA. How lucky was that? There followed TV roles in dramas including ‘the critically acclaimed State of Play, The Deal, Blackpool and Thorne (currently screening on Sky1).

Audience members will have the chance to take part in a Q&A section at the end ofthe event. You can ask him how he managed to avoid being a Grant or a Collins for example, when so many other young thesps in the city got caught.

Morrissey is famously married to Esther Freud, whose great grand father Sigmund may have had a tough time choosing between this gig and one titled “Not Queer Enough” on the same night.

This is a rebel rant from Peter Tatchell at the Philharmonic Hall's Rodewald Suite.

For over 40 years, beginning in 1967 with campaigns for Aboriginal rights and against the death penalty in Australia, the Australian-born British author and activist Peter Tatchell has campaigned on issues of democracy, civil liberties, social equality, environmental protection, peace and global justice.

Peter Tatchell is a co-founder and leading voice in the queer rights direct action group OutRage!, which in 1994 outed ten Anglican Bishops, accusing them of hypocrisy for publicly endorsing the church’s homophobic stance. His attempted citizen's arrest of Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, made him one of the world’s most recognisable campaigners for human rights.

It's a screenplay writing itself, eh?
