Using music and imagery, this autobiographical show tells a story of growing up with a gay father in a small town in the 1980s—before the words gay and father were acceptable in the same sentence. Alison has done over one hundred performances of the play across Canada, the U.S., and Mexico, and it has won numerous awards including Best Dramatic Script at NYC’s United Solo. The memoir was shortlisted for the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Nonfiction, nominated for the RBC/Taylor Prize for Non-Fiction, and became a national bestseller. Alison is also the author of the internationally acclaimed travel memoir Honeymoon in Purdah: an Iranian Journey.
