Description
A Southern Fairytale, written by and starring Broadway World award-winning actor Ty Autry and directed by David L. Carson, is coming to The Duplex straight off its international success in Dublin, Ireland at the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival (IDGTF) where it was nominated for the Doric Wilson Award for Intercultural Dialogue for exposing the role of conversion therapy and evangelicalism in dehumanizing LGTBQ people.

Based on true events, A Southern Fairytale artfully illuminates the challenges facing a young, gay Christian growing up in the Deep South. As we accompany the protagonist through multiple journeys into and out of the closet, the audience emotionally connects with the very real impacts of conversion therapy, excommunication, and a father who believes that a demon has possessed his son.

“This is a clever and well-written solo performer play, an intensely personal narrated journey about the transformative power of, as the character puts it, "faith and fairy dust." Both components of that phrase are equally important for understanding the propulsive forces behind this intriguing piece of theatre.”
 - Review from IDGTF

As family and friends impose extreme measures to reshape Alex Belmont to fit their ideal, the young man is left isolated and alone. Will he ever thrive – or even just simply survive - if he chooses to live as he was born?  Is happiness possible when the only faith you have ever known, not to mention everyone you love, demands that you are wrong and living a life of sin?

“Even though this play is based on real experiences in my life as a queer man, I believe that anyone, of any gender and orientation, and from any country, can see a part of themselves in this story,” says Autry. “My hope is that this one-man show will be a catalyst for conversations globally about healing and forgiveness. In today’s environment, as we see more evidence of overt bigotry and increased incidents of public shaming, around the world, I believe these conversations are much needed.”
