REFLECTIONS (OF AN UNSUNG HERO) (1990)
A solo performance created by Robert Pacitti, commissioned by AIDS Positive Theatre Company to cherish the work of Graham Wilkinson.
Shortly after the death in 1990 of Graham Wilkinson (founding Director of the Sussex AIDS Centre), Robert Pacitti was approached by Wilkinson’s ex-lover John Roman Baker. He asked if Robert would create a performance to honour Graham and he gave him full copies of Graham's diaries to work with.
The commission request was to make a radical live performance that responded to the content of these diaries, including Graham’s early Gay Liberation Front activism and his extensive AIDS activism, as well as his significant legacy from a lifetime of forcing for change.
Written, devised and performed by Robert Pacitti
Directed by Colin Schantz
