A show for anyone with a complex relationship to home, Ryan Lane’s playful, inventive and intimate character comedy explores what it means to be Welsh, queer and the myths that fuel national identity. A fast-paced, whip-smart satire with belly laughs, bellowing Rugby teachers, beguiling maidens, belligerent Grandma's and brilliant lip syncing. Think The League of Gentlemen meets Under Milk Wood and Clueless. Ryan's a graduate of Soho Theatre Young Company. This show's made with help from friends, family and 29 years of Welsh self-hatred.
