About Con-Version

‘Family is just another word for love. People don’t think you can choose either one. What do you think?’ Shortlisted for the VAULT Five and Charlie Hartill Award, Paper Mug Theatre presents CON-VERSION, a genre-defying exploration of conversion therapy and its effects on an ordinary British family. Tonight is a special night – Son’s returning home after a year of conversion therapy, kindly paid for by Mother and Father. Meanwhile, Sister is hiding a devastating truth. Father is trying to get Mother to talk to him. Mother is laying her trap. And The Neighbour’s Boy is lingering on the garden fence, hoping to see Son once more. CON-VERSION illuminates the horror of trying to change your intrinsic self. A unique piece of theatre from award-winning queer writer Rory Thomas-Howes, this is a story of truth, love and our personal prisons. Age Recommendation: 12+
