Résumé

Psycho-sexual musical thriller. The musical centres around two teenage boys who share an intimate adventure in a boy's home. Bernie has attempted suicide and David is a street hustler who may or may not have the powers of a wolf. Of course we all know werewolves don't exist. And people have to grow up. And stories must end. And as this one does we move further from fantasy to the cold reality of the corruptive devastation that is wrought by child abuse and neglect.

Commentaires :
The musical version by Russell Labey and Leon Parris had a four-night preview at the Tabard Theatre in Chiswick prior to opening at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2009. The original cast included Paul Holowaty, Gregg Lowe and Lee Latchford-Evans from “Steps”. With just a few minor revisions, the production was re-staged for its premiere at the Trafalgar Studios, previewing from July 6th, and running until the end of the month. Large parts of the show were “sung-through” and the music was pre-recorded. Because two of the performers were leading players in TV’s “Hollyoaks” it attracted good business, but its homo-eroticism, and sado-masochistic themes, together with its graphic sex scenes, proved too much for the majority of the critics who found it offensive.
