Mr Brightside hasn’t left the UK charts in 18 years. How did it end up like this? It was only a hit, it was only a hit. An interactive investigation with karaoke, lip syncing and absolute bangers.

Coming Out Of My Cage (And I've Been Doing Just Fine)

Dear Young Monster

Created by Pete Machale, Directed by Sammy Glover, Produced by Jess Donn (with support from Bristol Old Vic)

“A jolt, a shock, the whizz of something crackling through me, surging through my veins, my body awakening, THE HUM OF SOMETHING JUST BENEATH MY SKIN BUZZING TO LIFE FINALLY, FINALLY!”

Struggling at the beginning of his medical transition, a young trans man has dropped out of university and returned to his quiet hometown.

His friends are away, the locals are becoming increasingly hostile, his body is transforming before his very eyes into someone he doesn’t quite recognise yet and it’s all becoming too much… Until he catches a midnight screening of Frankenstein

At last, when he looks into the monsters big, dead, sad eyes, staring down at him from the screen, he feels seen.

Dear Young Monster is Pete MacHale’s debut solo show, pulling apart fear, otherness, and what it means to embrace being the monster that the world keeps telling you that you are.

A truly important piece of theatre
