Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre
In September 1996, Channel 4 screened a documentary about River Phoenix as a gay icon. One participant in that film was a 23-year-old Chris Goode. Chris's new solo show uses the life and death of River Phoenix to look back on the turbulent experience of queer life in the 90s – including the intense summer of his first Edinburgh Fringe, twenty-five years ago. A compelling blend of documentary and fractured autobiography, Narcolepsy is a warmly intimate story about how we become who we are. 'Infinite talent and infinite compassion' (Guardian).
