Navigating one’s queerness is a lifelong odyssey! Three-time Prague Fringe Award nominee John Arthur Sweet makes his second appearance in Brighton with an autobiographical two-part mélange of theatrical monologue, storytelling, and spoken word. This is the tale of a gay, bullied, smalltown Canadian kid who found refuge in theatre.

The show is in two stand-alone parts: Part I (Childhood) and Part II (Adulthood).

Part I will be performed: 5, 7, 9, 11 May @ 20:20
Part II on 6, 8, 10, 12 May @ 20:20
The show will be performed as a whole on 13 and 14 May: Part I @ 17:40, Part II @ 20:20.

You don’t need to see both parts, or to see them in order!

Content warning: Numerous pop culture references from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s.

Reviews from John’s last show:

"Sweet doesn't waste a word, each image is perfectly crafted to get his story across and his voice wouldn't be out of place in a bedtime audiobook." (Prague Youth Theatre)

"Throughout his show, we are invited to get to know a man who is relatable, as funny as he is touching, and “splendidly human." (Montreal Theatre Hub)
