Tonight, Jo saw her daughter Wendy sing for the first time in the pub where she used to work – they don’t seem to have a relationship. Jo doesn’t seem to have a relationship with anyone really, and the Green Fairy wants to know where it all went wrong…

Memories start to surface of Jo’s adolescence and early adulthood in 1990s London. Together, they explore Jo’s relationship with her ex-girlfriend, ex-husband and eventually her daughter.

An ode to queer parenting and overcoming anxiety, The Green Fairy is a pub musical following one woman’s struggle to take back control of her own life before it’s too late.

The Green Fairy is by Jack Sain and Stephen Libby. Musical direction by William Bullivant, dramaturg and associate writer – Hannah Hauer-King with set and costume design by Katharine Heath.
