Boy Stroke Girl
  • London Fringe

Can you fall in love with someone if you don't know their gender?

Peter is about to find out when he falls for the sexually ambiguous Blue.

Their relationship poses a challenge to Peters identity, forcing him to face some difficult questions: To what extent are we all encouraged to conform to narrow culturally defined stereotypes, to label and to pigeon-hole ourselves?

Are these labels a form of straight jacket, by adapting to them do we compromise our true nature and can we defy the ultimate label of gender? Does this pressure to conform inevitably give rise to derision and hatred towards those who by choice or inclination, stand outside society's norms?

Casting caution to the wind, Peters passion for Blue provokes prejudice and hostility from friends and family in a tale of sexual liberation and shattered taboos.
