In the lead up to the Brexit vote, award-winning artist Scottee travelled across England to interview LGBTQI people angered by mainstream politics.

His bold new production Putting Words in Your Mouth explores notions of belonging, identity and the legacy of Thatcherism, taking a hard look at what happens when communities are left behind.

Challenging what it means to be British and queer in 2016, Scottee shines a light on a divided society, where those we think we identify with can shock and surprise us.

Putting Words in Your Mouth is a lip-sync marathon that’s messy, in more ways than one.

Hear more from the director Scottee in his interview with Run Riot.
