Theatre Collingwood is thrilled to present Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter on Saturday April 11, 2015 at 7:30pm at The Historic Gayety Theatre. Alison Wearing stars in this one-woman, award winning, play based on her best-selling memoir. Woven through music and imagery, this very humorous and amusing monologue moves from Alison's carefree childhood through to the moment she learns, at the age of 12, that her family is a bit more complex than she had believed.
A touching story about growing up in small-town Ontario while her family faced the fact that her father was gay, Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter is a tribute to the power of truth, humour, acceptance and familial love. Alison weaves a captivating tale of family life; deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life's great lessons in love.
Winner of 5-STARS and the Outstanding Show Award from the CBC, Alison Wearing brings her very personal story to life, skillfully, warmly, and heartfelt. "When I first saw this production I was incredibly touched by how generous Alison was in sharing her story with us. It is a beautiful story about acceptance, love and respect, and I could not wait to offer it to our audience", said Executive Director, Erica Angus.
