Ghosts of Leigh: Two Acts is a coming of age play that follows the identity struggle of a teenage boy, Dandelion, who is coming to terms with being a little different. With the fabulous guidance of the bold and free-spirited ghost of 1980s artist/designer Leigh Bowery, Dandelion embraces who he is. This play brings to life the struggle with, and triumph over, social conformity and the consequences and anxieties individuals go through on a day to day basis to cover up who they really are in order to seem “normal”.
