Half a Person: My Life as Told by the Smiths (Season III)

‘Half A Person: My Life as told by the Smiths”’ is a one-man show peppered with 12 songs by the melancholic Morrisey and The Smiths. As anyone familiar with the band would expect, there is a side serve of black humour and lashings of angst. The quiff wearing, William, is a self-obsessed young man juggling three loves. The first is Salome - a Gothic ice queen he meets at a Brunswick Street cafe reading Oscar Wilde. The sex is great, but will their torrid affair survive subculture-hopping and dates to the cemetery? William has a more intimate, complex friendship with Rick - an older gay man who is cultured, famous ... and dying.
