Denton and Me
By Sam Rowe, adapted from the diaries of Denton Welch
1944: Fastidious diarist Denton Welch writes with astonishing honesty about his obsession for reckless land-boy Eric.
2011: A young writer is given the diaries by a family friend and discovers echoes of his own life within.
This multi-layered, stunningly designed show weaves together writer/performer Sam Rowe’s autobiography with the writing of Denton Welch (1915-1948), a fascinating figure in queer and literary history, and favourite of Alan Bennett, William S Burroughs and John Waters.
A powerful, moving and humorous production, in collaboration with Scotland’s most exciting theatrical talent.
Supported by the Scottish Government Expo Fund through the 2016 Made in Scotland showcase.
Adapted from the journals of Denton Welch and perfomermed by Sam Rowe
Directed by Nichaolas Bone Designed by Colin O'Hara Sound Design / Composition by Scott Twynholm Original Lighting Design by George Court
