Elizabeth Gibson

Catch new work from Elizabeth Gibson, being performed at HOME Manchester as part of Dibby Theatre’s First Dibs showcase.


First Dibs: The Assembly is a script-in-hand sharing of five new plays written by LGBTQ+ playwrights. and the culmination of Dibby Theatre’s first ever First Dibs course.

First Dibs is a radical new 14-week play-making school led by LGBTQ+ artists, for LGBTQ+ artists.

Part of Dibby Theatre’s outreach and education programme supporting working class and LGBTQ+ artists and communities. 


Liz’s piece is a one-person show. The protagonist hops forward and back in time, over the course of a year like no other, to retrace her walks around the canals of Manchester. She encounters various creatures – a food-orientated cat, a haughty goose, an invisible dog, and a philosophical bee – and their conversations dip between fear, reflection, humour and tenderness, as the world around them changes, and the protagonist makes some big decisions.
