Meet Billy Costello. He’s a young, gay, depressed, autistic actor with a drink and drug problem.
After being outed in Aldi’s fruit and veg aisle, Billy’s family turn against him and he goes on a disastrous drink and drugs bender. With going home no longer an option, Billy jumps on the first train out of town – to Blackpool.
In a heartwarming and heartbreaking lost weekend, Billy looks back on his life and sees no hope. He walks out into the Irish Sea with no intention of ever coming out. But all is not lost. Friendship and love come calling to remind him of who he is and can be again.
This fabulous one-man show is performed by actor Mark Newsome – and is based on his own life story.
The show, written by Phil Pearson, comes to the Stanley Arms (upstairs) in Preston on Tuesday, Feb 26, 2019 at 8pm (doors open at 7pm). Tickets available on the door or from WeGotTickets here.
