Playwright/actor/author Alison Wearing adapted her memoir Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter: Growing Up with a Gay Dad into the award-winning one-woman show Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter, which will be featured during World Pride 2014 Toronto at U of T’s George Ignatieff Theatre (June 25-28).
Written as a comic monologue, Wearing takes us along on her journey of discovery and coming to grips with her father coming out when she was 12.
“Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, this is a story of birthday parties and bath house raids, confusion and closets, scandals and soufflés, disco and opera, and the triumphant music of love.”
This is a show you will not want to miss – so best reserve your tickets for Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter now.
