Tommy’s gone up North to start a revolution.

Queer, disabled and working-class, he’s had enough of being held back by the system, and is determined to finally tear it all down.

But arriving at Stockton High Street’s historic market, Tommy starts to question their ideas about what working classness means to them – and what kind of liberation they really need.

The four pillars of the Stockton community have started their own revolution already. And it’ll take much more than a Southerner with a megaphone to change things for good.

Co-produced over six months of collaboration with local residents of Stockton-on-Tees, Tommy (The Queer Historian) returns to ARC this summer with their new show about class, a 700 year-old market and the whole of the Teesside community.

The Queen of the North crosses the North-South divide and multiple generations of working class culture, to deliver an unforgettable manifesto for freedom.

Written and performed by Tommy
Directed by Scott Le Crass

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and by ARC Stockton & Teesside Archives.
