Queer Women in Love: Break My Fall (Newcastle)

December 3, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Liza is hovering precariously between change and self-destruction, between leaving her failing relationship with girlfriend Sally and finding success with their band, Blanket. Sally is working in an unfulfilling job and clinging to fantasies of a better life, ignoring the chaos around her. Their best friends are Vin, a rent boy who is secretly in love with Sally, and Jamie, who works nights at a gay cabaret bar and longs to find a nice man to settle down with. On the three days leading up to Liza’s 25th birthday, things finally come to a head and the four are plunged into an emotional meltdown. Set on the pulsating streets of East London and with a soundtrack featuring stars of the UK independent music scene such as Micachu, Peggy Sue, and Scout Niblett.

Followed by a discussion with Dr Julie Scanlon, Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Literature, Gender and Sexuality, and Dr Jacky Collins, Senior Lecturer in Film and TV, both from Gendered Subjects.

Rated 15.
