Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is the second time I have presented a show in Edinburgh but the first time I’ve ever presented a solo show. My last show was in 2011 and was called Shane & Eddie: Picking up the Pieces which was at Just The Tonic.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’16?
I quit my job, moved out of my house and moved out of Australia to tour the UK.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote the show because I had never been in love, so I thought if I might not experience it first hand -perhaps I could experience it on stage. So in the show, I imagine to most unashamedly romantic, beautiful big gay love story…and I wrote a musical about it. A lot of gay love stories are tragic, without a happy ending -so I wanted to wrote a beautiful and bright gay love story, one that I wish I had of seen when I was younger.
I have presented the show at Perth Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Mardi Gras Festival and Provocare Festival in Melbourne.
