About Love Song to Lavender Menace

James Ley in association with Royal Lyceum Theatre, supported by Red Bridge Arts

A funny and moving play that tells the story of the huge role that radical feminist and LGBT+ bookshop Lavender Menace played in Scotland's LGBT liberation.

You want books? I’ll give you books!

It’s 1987 and shop workers Paul and David are getting ready for a celebration of the 5th anniversary of Lavender Menace, Scotland’s foremost lesbian, gay, feminist bookshop.

From its humble beginnings in the cloakroom of an Edinburgh nightclub, (that saw a performance from the Village People!), this trailblazing venture has become the beating heart of Edinburgh’s LGBT community. But can it survive in Thatcher’s changing Britain of capitalism and commodification?

Love Song to Lavender Menace is a beautifully funny and moving exploration of the love and passion it takes to make something happen and the loss that is felt when you have to let it go.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Love Song to Lavender Menace are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
