Brit hit about gay activist lands at St. Ann’s

'A Life in Three Acts' will get a New York run

Edinburgh Fringe Festival hit “A Life in Three Acts” will get a New York run next month at Arts at St. Ann’s in Brooklyn.

Production stars performer-activist Bette Bourne and playwright Mark Ravenhill, who recreate onstage a series of conversations between them about Bourne’s life at the vanguard of gay liberation in the U.K.

Bourne’s last Off Broadway credit was the 2001 New York Theater Workshop run of “Resident Alien,” a solo show about Quentin Crisp.

“Life in Three Acts” picked up the 2009 Fringe First award at Edinburgh over the summer, and is currently playing in London at the Soho Theater.

Produced by London Artists Projects, the show will play through Feb. 27 at the Soho before it transfers directly to St. Ann’s, where the production will run March 4-28.
