Now the home-grown Brighton shows, that boldly arose from the warm ashes of life after having a child, are joined by their most ambitious blossom, "Billy, the Musical". This growing set of plays, described as "An evening with the side of your dad you never knew" is written and performed by Brighton-born Jonathan Brown, (Best Male Performer Nominee Brighton Fringe 2007) and are really going from strength to strength. Written from the perspective of different dads, and all set in Brighton, this bright bouquet is both a celebration of, and a rib at, fathers and the "city" itself. In Part 2 find your borrowers card and meet the gender-reassigned librarian Jenny, playing family court judges and illiterate lovers to find honour and realistic literary heroes in a world gone large print and trash-romance mad. To gain access to her son she turns to Shakespeare and her ability to shapeshift in an ingenious meta-theatre plan that requires even more wit than even she had expected to employ, and sees a man playing a man playing a woman playing a woman playing a man making love to a man, enabling a host of surprising relationships to open up for her. Not least, with herself. Dubious sanity and uncertain identity intertwine with wit, humour, rage... and love.
