Preaching the word to thousands in football stadiums and evangelising undercover in China, amidst 30 years of door-knocking, and all the while the sound of sexuality was knocking loudly upon his own door. Escaping from a high-control religious group is not as simple as walking away. It is a waking-up process that can take years.

This one-man autobiographical show navigates such an exit and the subsequent delirium of walking into a forbidden world.

The Scotsman – “…a tenderly delivered piece with vignettes of real intimacy and connection.”

The FringeReview – “Daring Work”, “An illuminating and courageous performance.”
