Theatre Collingwood presents: Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter

September 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - September 23, 2023 @ 9:00 pm

Alison Wearing  is a bestselling, multiple award-winning writer, playwright and performer. She is also a memoir writing coach and the creator/facilitator of Memoir Writing Ink, an online program that guides people through the process of transforming personal stories into memoir. She will be in Collingwood September 19th – 23rd performing her play/memoir at the Simcoe Street Theatre.

Based on her bestselling memoir, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter tells the story of a young girl growing up with a gay father in the 1980s. Woven through music and imagery, the comic monologue moves from Alison’s carefree childhood to the moment she learned, at age twelve, that her family was a bit more complex than she had thought. The ensuing years were a time of confusion and disbelief, puff pastry and opera, bathhouse raids, scandal and celebration.

Balancing intimacy, history and humour, this is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love. Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter has been performed more than 150 times and has won several awards. Join Theatre Collingwood for the triumphant return of Alison and her heartfelt, honest, deeply funny and personal one-woman show. You won’t want to miss this brilliant portrayal of family, love, and forgiveness.
