Based on her bestselling memoir, Alison Wearing – Author/Performer/Writing Coach‘s Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter one-woman show tells the story of growing up with a gay father in the 1980s. Woven through music and imagery, the 70-minute 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 – eventually – celebration. Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is a captivating tale of family life: agonizingly imperfect, delightfully challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.

The show has played to sold-out houses across Canada and off-Broadway, earning 5-star reviews and top awards at virtually every festival in which it appears. As a memoir, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter was shortlisted for the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Nonfiction, nominated for the prestigious RBC/Taylor Prize for Non-Fiction, and selected as an Indigo, Chapters and Coles Recommended Reads and Top 50 Books of 2013.
