Fuel presents

A shockingly direct and heartbreakingly funny new play about love and self-discovery in the flashy, trashy New York of the 1990s.

Tom Stuart delivered a tour-de-force performance in this mesmerising one man show. Ad man by day and drag queen by night, Josh battles his own alcoholism while desperately trying to make his relationship work with Jack, a high-class rent boy addicted to crack.

I Am Not Myself These Days is the story of one man’s unconventional journey to self-acceptance that resonates far beyond the confines of the story.
