He weaves humour, history, and memoir in a coming of age tale about his time studying drama at Weston college. Tom reflects on the characters that surrounded him, the devastating effect of AIDS, and the importance of intergenerational dialogue between LGBTQ+ people. Expect 90s tunes, spoken word, lip synchs, and heartfelt storytelling.
