Based on the journals of Denton Welch
Presented by Sam Rowe Theatre and Macrobert Arts Centre in association with Showroom.

1944: Fastidious diarist Denton Welch writes with astonishing honesty about his obsession for reckless land-boy Eric.

2011: A young writer is given the diaries by a family friend and discovers echoes of his own life within.

This multi-layered, stunningly designed show weaves together writer/performer Sam Rowe’s autobiography with the writing of Denton Welch (1915-1948), a fascinating figure in queer and literary history, and favourite of Alan Bennett, William S Burroughs and John Waters.

A powerful, moving and humorous production, in
collaboration with Scotland’s most exciting theatrical talent.

Follows success at The Arches (2015).
