CONFETTI (Work in Progress) by Will Jackson
Felix is uptight and unlucky in love. He's the 'mate of honour' for his best friend's wedding, and it's going to be the best day EVER… as long as there aren't any distractions…
A queer rom-com from Attitude Magazine's "Rising Comic Star" Will Jackson. From surprise hen night to wedding reception, Confetti follows event planner Felix, as he begins a tumultuous relationship whilst keeping it a secret from the bride.
Catch this work-in-progress show ahead of its Summer tour.
