A piece in development for the Edinburgh Fringe 2019.
Smalltown Boy tells the story of a drag queen named Edie, who, in the wake of her boyfriend Leo’s unexpected death, travels to his countryside home to confront his family, whom she has never met, or hereto heard from. Here, she discovers Leo’s second life; including his childhood sweetheart Hannah to whom he is engaged. In each other, Hannah and Edie discover their own conflicting understandings of who Leo was, and question what their lives will be in his wake. We hope to experiment with multimedia, drag, and dialogue to create a piece about misunderstanding, grief and unlikely friendship.
