‘Bonfire’ is a tragicomic monologue-play exploring bodies, identity & the experience of a young queer digital native left to it alone in the wilderness. 

Leon’s gone live. Stood in his Nana’s lounge, wearing his favourite cardigan, blasting the Sugababes, Leon’s determined to confront the demons of his past; both digital and physical. BONFIRE follows a young gay man from Derbyshire’s journey through adolescence. 

'an important piece of queer theatre'
