Dear Young MonsterProduced by Jess Donn With Support from Bristol Old Vic
“A jolt, a shock, the whizz of something crackling through me, surging through my veins, my body awakening, THE HUM OF SOMETHING JUST BENEATH MY SKIN BUZZING TO LIFE FINALLY, FINALLY!”
Struggling at the beginning of his medical transition, a young trans man has dropped out of university and returned to his quiet hometown.
His friends are away, the locals are becoming increasingly hostile, his body is transforming before his very eyes into someone he doesn’t quite recognise yet and it’s all becoming too much... Until he catches a midnight screening of Frankenstein.
At last, when he looks into the monsters big, dead, sad eyes, staring down at him from the screen, he feels seen.
Dear Young Monster is Pete MacHale’s debut solo
show, pulling apart fear, otherness, and what it means to embrace being the
monster that the world keeps telling you that you are.
