Are you interested in forgiving yourself and finding inner peace? No, neither is Alby. Which is why they’ve decided to spend their twenties running from their issues and sleeping with strangers. It’s all going REALLY WELL. Until one night, whilst screwing yet another accountant, Alby stares too deeply into his eyes. Walking home, strange white birds begin to appear, and as the city unfolds in front of them, so does a secret buried long ago.
Blending dance, stand-up and pop music, this explosive new monologue follows one young person asking impossible questions: why am I like this? Who made sushi so expensive? And, are the straights ok?
‘Woof delivers a multi-layered performance that mixes dance with intense emotion… never missing a word or perfectly timed punchline’ The Wee Review (*****) ‘a profound mix of comedy and emotion’ The Student (****).
GOYA is an award winning young, queer theatre company creating new work about right now. Our productions are bound together by a love of ensemble storytelling and a fascination with the meeting point of music, text and movement. Most recently, we took three new pieces of work to the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe where we won the Musical Theatre Review's special award.
