Riot Road Theatre Company


Riot Road is a verbatim theatre company founded by Holly Parnell and Joshua Chapman in July 2018.

Our latest work Prefer Not To Say explores the eclectic, vibrant and often challenging lives of people from within the LGBTQ+ community. After a successful run at Edinburgh Fringe 2019 we are looking to tour our production to raise awareness about such poignant, and crucial topics in todays current social climate.

Through these testimonies the play discusses the polarised debate on trans rights, religious intolerance, coming out to parents to name a few, raising issues that speak to all aspects of humanity. The play is an uplifting and thought-provoking experience that leaves its audiences feeling liberated and empowered.
