Dear Young Monster
Written and performed by Pete MacHale
Dracula’s bite is a testosterone injection, hormonal rage and puberty peach fuzz manifests as the Wolfman, drunk lads gather at the door of the toilet cubicle like angry villagers mobbing Frankenstein’s castle. Using monster movie iconography to explore self image and articulate the trans experience, join Pete as he navigates moments of gender euphoria and dysphoria and tries to rebuild and reconnect with his body through expressions of ugliness, looking for comfort in monstrosity.
Welcome to the show!

She hasn’t quite figured out what “the show” is just yet. She gets distracted by the usual; video’s of dogs dancing, needing a snack, needing a nap, waking up from the nap and needing another snack… cigarettes, instagram, watching clips from Say Yes to the Dress because her attention span is far too small for an entire episode, oh and her dad died. Small things really. But she’s working on it, promise!’
