Confessions Of a Fairy's Daughter
Based on her bestselling memoir, the Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter one-woman show tells Alison Wearing's true story of growing up with a gay father in the 1980s.
Woven through music and imagery, this award winning monologue moves from Alison's carefree childhood to the moment she learned, at age twelve, that her family was a tad more complex than she had thought. The ensuing eight years were a time of confusion and disbelief, puff pastry and opera, bath house raids, scandal and celebration.
Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously
challenging, and full of life's great lessons in love.
