Sometimes, there’s a play that causes a writer’s block for all the right reasons. ‘Fresh Start’ was one such play, posing question after question and leaving the audience to answer them.
At a time when the Island is getting ready to welcome the second IW Pride event, yet society in general is still grappling with the idea that not everyone fits into neatly defined gender brackets, this play is relevant and needed.

Overall, this was a highly animated and well executed farce – light and droll with a happy ending.
