Fuel presents I Am Not Myself These Days

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.
