Based on her bestselling memoir, Alison Wearing’s Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter tells the story of growing up with a gay father in the 1980s. Woven through music and imagery, the comic 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 years were a time of confusion and disbelief, puff pastry and opera, bathhouse raids, scandal and celebration. Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, this is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.
