~ creation ~

The Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter one-woman show was created in 2011 in Tepoztlán, Mexico, by writer Alison Wearing and director Stuart Cox. It had its premiere in Mexico in March 2011 and then toured in Quebec and Ontario, Canada, before Alison decided to take a year off and expand the script into a full-length book. When the memoir was published in 2013 by Alfred A. Knopf Canada, Alison did a cross-country tour of the book, together with the show, doing more than 50 performances in 5 months in 15 cities, and garnering 5-star reviews and numerous awards in virtually every festival in which it appeared, including Best Dramatic Script in New York City's United Solo Festival. The show continues to tour to theatres and festivals across the country and abroad.
