    ‘Desperate Wee Gay Boy’ wants a boyfriend!

    Ollie is all those things; desperate, wee and gay. From Scotland he finds himself flourishing in the freedom that London offers him when ghosts from his past creep up behind him. Just when he starts to figure out his identity, Rory - an old friend - comes into town slandering his name. In the midst of parties, sex and the quest for love he finds himself accused of assault. This is about a gay man from Leith navigating queer life in the Big Smoke. He questions if London has broken his heart or has the shame from a toxic friend group in Scotland engulfed him.

    Developed and Supported by Sláinte! Theatre.
