Denton and Me

SAM ROWE and MACROBERT ARTS CENTRE in association with SHOWROOM

★★★★ "‘At once fond tribute, self-effacing autobiography and a finely-wrought portrait of love, longing and solitude.’"

(The National)

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 Scottish Government Expo Fund through the 2016 Made in Scotland showcase.

Summerhall, Edinburgh Fringe 2016

★★★★★

‘There is humour peppered throughout the performance and Sam moves silkily between playing Denton and playing himself. This was an enthralling 75minutes – highly recommended.’
