It’s 1997. You’re 11. You’re sad, lonely and scared of doing anything that would single you out by hopeless, angry people in your hometown.
One day you see a man on telly. He’s mumbling, yet electrifying. He sings: 'I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does'. You become obsessed with him. You write to him. A lot.
It’s 2017. You find those letters and ask yourself: 'Has the world changed, or have I changed?'.
Gary McNair returns to the Traverse after his award-winning sell-out show A Gambler’s Guide to Dying.
