'GROSS INDECENCY' A cabaret about the infamous Forest Town Party raid

14, 15, 16 August at 8 pm, 17 August at 3.30 pm.
Popart Centre, Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg

The story of a big party…. 

Hosted by Rita Haywire and Lana Turna-Me-Over, GROSS INDECENCY is the true story of a very big queer party held in Forest Town, 1966. A police raid led to stringent new homophobic laws (part of the Immorality Act) and the infamous ‘’3 men at a party” clause – not unlike the house arrest laws that considered 3 people or more as a crowd – who could be arrested for homosexual acts.

Fasten your seat belts you’re in for a bumpy ride through the dark and dirty anals of South African LGBTI history!

Written by and starring 
Robert Colman & Robert Whitehead 
with studio orchestra by Mr Tony Bentel
