LOVE Song to a Lavender Menace will drop in on the Macrobert Arts Centre as part of a Scottish tour.

Written by James Ley and directed by Ros Philips, the play is described as a radical, time-travelling, disco-dancing, LGBT+ love story.

It's a homage to the founders of Lavender Menace, a radical LGBT and feminist bookshop that opened in 1982 on Edinburgh's Forth Street.

A trailblazing venture that began life in the cloakroom of a gay club, it quickly becomes the beating heart for Edinburgh's LGBT+ community.

Now, on the final night of the shop's existence, sales assistants Lewis and Glen take a look back at its origins, its importance, its celebration of queer culture, how things have changed and straight away, the arguments begin.

The play's writer James said: "Writing a play about a bookshop could have been really dry, but the people behind the scenes of this iconic place have made telling this story anything but.

"This little-known slice of Scottish LGBT+ history has fascinated me as I've probed into the story and the world of early 80s Edinburgh.

"The energy, passion and senses of humour of shop founders Bob Orr and Sigrid Nielsen, and all the people they worked with on this groundbreaking venture, is what fed the drama.

"I wanted to show the ingenuity, determination, and anarchy of working in the shop.

"What I've arrived at is a bit of a love story between two young guys working in the shop, debating its history and their individual, and shared, futures, on the last night of the shop's existence."

Catch the production when it appears in Stirling on Thursday, October 26, starting at 7.30pm.
