Résumé

Psycho-sexual musical thriller. The musical centres around two teenage boys who share an intimate adventure in a boy's home. Bernie has attempted suicide and David is a street hustler who may or may not have the powers of a wolf. Of course we all know werewolves don't exist. And people have to grow up. And stories must end. And as this one does we move further from fantasy to the cold reality of the corruptive devastation that is wrought by child abuse and neglect.
