Emerging theatre company Flugelman Productions presents the première of The Poetry We Make at Brighton Fringe festival.
What happens when the person you love announces their gender transition? For Elliott, the world is tipped on its head. Everything that was true no longer is and Elliott must consider some very big assumptions. Who did she fall in love with: a body, a soul, a gender? Can Elliot learn to love Robin as a woman? Come on a journey of love, loss and acceptance, all with the lyrical support of Dolly Parton – with Dolly as your guide, the ending is bound to be fabulous.
The Poetry We Make is a new love story for our times, written by Jaswinder Blackwell-Pal. Based on real life events and the creative collaboration between two RADA graduates, Edwina Strobl will direct Blackwell-Pal’s Brighton Fringe debut, with a cast of performers and musicians, including Transgender performer Elijah W. Harris. Winners of the O2’s ThinkBig bursary and in partnership with StoneCrabs Theatre, the script has been developed with the support of Wilton’s Music Hall and Old Vic New Voices project for outstanding young playwrights.
The Poetry We Make will play at the Marlborough Theatre as part of the Brighton Fringe festival on 6-7 May. For more information or to book tickets, please see the website.
