BRIGHTON FRINGE PREVIEW: The Poety we make by Jaswinder Blackwell-Pal

April 26, 2017

Who do we fall in love with: a body, a soul, a gender?

Emerging theatre company Flugelman Productions presents the premiere of The Poetry We Make, a new love story for our times, by Jaswinder Blackwell-Pal.

There will be two special performances only, at the Marlborough Theatre, as part of the Brighton Fringe festival on May 6 and 7 at 5:45pm.

Based on real life events and the creative collaboration between two RADA graduates, Edwina Strobl will direct Jaswinder Blackwell-Pal’s Brighton Fringe debut, with an extraordinary cast of performers and musicians, including Transgender performer Elijah W. Harris.

Winners of the O2’s ThinkBig bursary and in partnership with StoneCrabs Theatre, the script has been developed with the support of Wilton’s Music Hall and Old Vic New Voices project for outstanding young playwrights.

What happens when the person you love announces their gender transition?

For Elliott, the world is tipped on its head. Everything that was true no longer is and Elliott must consider some very big assumptions.

Who did she fall in love with: a body, a soul, a gender? and can Elliot learn to love Robin as a woman?

No love story is ordinary, but this one especially isn’t. So, go on a journey of love, loss and acceptance, all with the lyrical support of Dolly Parton.

With Dolly as your guide, the ending is bound to be fabulous.
