A moving and surprisingly funny one-woman show about growing up with a gay father in the 1980s, and a tribute to the power of truth, humour, acceptance and familial love. Based on Alison Wearing’s National best-selling memoir, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter, the play weaves music and imagery through the true story of Alison’s carefree childhood to the moment she learned, at age twelve, that her family was a bit more complex than she had thought. The ensuing years were a time of confusion and disbelief, puff pastry and opera, bathhouse raids, scandal and celebration. Balancing intimacy, history and humour, this is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.
