Carnation for a Song | YV Taking Part response to Fun Home

Carnation for a Song was a Community Response to Sam Gold’s production of Fun Home. Created with Director Megan Cronin and Musical Director Joseph Atkins, Taking Part had an incredibly open and generous company who shared their LGBTQ stories to build this moving musical experience.

The company was made up of LGBTQ Londoners, all aged 50+ and featured original songs by Joseph Atkins directly inspired by their experiences being on the front line of the fight for cultural acceptance and equal rights from the past, as well as the present and their hopes for a more inclusive future.



Big thanks to the excellent creative and production team who put yet another outstanding community production together in just three weeks, and as always, a standing ovation to the marvelous Carnation for a Song company.
