Turn On Fest: The Regulars & Trans Social Club

With a passionate score and a familiar story, The Regulars is a captivating original musical about identity and self-love — reminding us that despite our differences, we are all deserving of acceptance for who we are.

Mark Howard moves away from his West Virginia home to a rural, upstate town in search of a new type of family. When he picks up a stockroom position at the town’s local orchard, he’s met with toxic masculinity and comes to terms with his newfound male privilege. And during his first day, he befriends Dani Thompson, a Black queer woman who’s opening her own gay bar. Over time, these two very regular people form and find chosen family in one another and their community.


Hope Mill Theatre will be collaborating with Trans Creative to double bill The Regulars alongside new Trans writing.

This event will be a Trans Social event.

Run by Trans Creative, The Trans Social Club is a space for trans and non binary people and allies to come together, socialise and share work in a safe trans friendly space to tell our own stories. Come and be part of the first 2022 Trans social club. Trans artists mandla, Clare Shaw, Maz Hedgehog and Taylor Le Fin will be sharing some exciting new work, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to be the first to see it.
