Bryden MacDonald’s Whale Riding Weather will be at the Sex Festival, February 7th through the 12th. A finalist for the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, this is a love story in which a faded queen finds his mind slipping away from him along with his young lover, who meets a new, even younger man.
Here’s what the Georgia Straight had to say:
“The characters in Whale Riding Weather remind me of those Catholic pictures of Christ opening his chest to show us his sacred heart—except that this time Christ’s gay, he’s in his underwear, and he’s really, really drunk.”
