Armistead Maupin

In his first ever UK tour, Fane Productions and Kilimanjaro present an evening with the bestselling, much-loved author and LGBT activist, Armistead Maupin.

Maupin has been blazing a trail through US popular culture since the 1970’s, when his iconic and ground-breaking series Tales of the City was first published as a column in the San Francisco Chronicle. The novel series has been taking the literary world by storm ever since, and is currently being adapted by Netflix into a much-anticipated new series, starring Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Page.

Don’t miss the chance to join America’s ultimate storyteller, as he recounts his favourites tales from the past 4 decades, offering his own engaging observations on society and the world we inhabit.

Storyhouse is Chester’s theatre, cinema and arts centre housed in a rejuvenated 1930s art deco Odeon cinema building. The Storyhouse’s theatre transforms from an 800 seat proscenium (the Touring Stage) to a 500 seat thrust (the Storyhouse stage).

The programme features international theatre, dance, opera, circus and comedy, as well as original, work from Storyhouse.

The centre also includes a library meaning the theatre and box office area is open and staffed for many more hours than otherwise.
