Woven through music and imagery, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter tells the story of growing up with a gay father in the 1980’s. Balancing intimacy, history, and downright hilarity, this frolicking monologue is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.

Written and performed by Alison Wearing and directed by Stuart Cox, the-newly expanded production includes material from her recently-released memoir, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter. The show’s been awarded Outstanding Solo Show and Patrons’ Pick at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival and Best of Fest at Stratford Springworks Festival and at Quebec’s Wakefield Fringe Festival.
