Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is the colourful story of growing up with a gay father. Artfully woven through music and slideshow images, this 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 celebration. Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, delightfully challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.
