Exeter, 1984. How do you survive being gay at high school with only Culture Club, Eurythmics and Tears for Fears on your side? A funny and painfully honest solo performance about beating the bullies with the magic force fields of pop music and acting in school plays. Raw confessions from an era when being picked on for a sexuality you barely understood felt more like Orwell’s 1984 than the real one. A bittersweet celebration of a time when you revelled in the innocently uncool joys of Kajagoogoo like your life depended on it. Because maybe it actually did. First crushes. Dancing to your Walkman. Trying to tape the Top 40 without the DJ talking over it. Constant pressure to be straight. Act more “masculine”. A long time ago… but maybe not all that different from now. “Do you really want to hurt me?” Written and directed by Ben SantaMaria, performed by Ryan Price. Suitable for ages 15+.
