Two solo plays by celebrated performance artist La JohnJoseph, author of the Polari and Lamda-nominated novel Everything Must Go (ITNA Press).A Generous Lover is the true and very queer tale of one soul’s journey through the wasteland of mental illness to deliver their lost love. Brimming with psychedelic proletarian prose and trenchant wit, it recounts the pandemonium of navigating mental health services on behalf of a loved one, whilst being transfeminine, and occasionally mistaken for a patient. Drawing on epic poetry, classical mythology, and queer modernist literature, A Generous Lover fuses psychology, euphonic prose and song, to create an intimate and beguiling world.Boy in a Dress follows the life story thus far of La JohnJoseph, a transgender, fallen Catholic, ex-fashion model from the wrong side of the tracks. In this autobiographical, raucously political, and accidentally profound piece, La JohnJoseph brings together an outrageous but heartfelt slew of true-life tales of catholicism and drag, public sexuality and body dysmorphia.
