Just A Small Town Boy—Jack Gow at Melbourne Fringe

BY Diana Wolfe | 21-Aug-2019
Just A Small Town Boy - Jack Gow at Melbourne Fringe

Just A Small Town Boy is a hilarious, yet bittersweet, coming-of-age story exploring the idiosyncrasies of growing up as an outsider in small-town country Australia. This is a show about masculinity, failure and Nelson Mandela. It’s about slam poetry, the Year 12 formal, and patriarchal power structures. It’s about teen love, internalized homophobia, and drunkenly kissing your best friend at a house party to the sound of Timbaland. Inspired by the likes of Hannah Gadsby, David Sedaris, and Daniel Kitson, it’s a show for anyone who has ever been rejected by society, questioned their sexuality, or felt that they needed to compromise their true self in order to fit in.
