Who do we fall in love with: a body, a soul, a gender?
When Elliott discovers her ex-boyfriend Robin has started to transition into a woman her world turns upside down. With the help of her hero and spirit guide, Dolly Parton, she examines her memories of the man she loved - re-imagining what it means to be a woman, and what it means to be in love.

Nominated for the Brighton Fringe 2017 Beyond the Fringe award, Flugelman Productions presents The Poetry We Make, Jaswinder Blackwell-Pal’s touching new play about love, loss, Dolly Parton and understanding love beyond gender.
