Dido St. Claire and Auckland Fringe present:

Dead Boys Are Blue

The world fell apart—but the dead boy won’t.

Sauce is an old man of the sea deemed crazy by the courts, but his wit has never been sharper.

Irma Braithwaite is a faded silver screen legend, but not as mysterious as her life before Hollywood.

Pat and Jim live their life in fear of Sister Mary Agnes, but their son has been suffering more.

Their secret hideaway has let four rejects watch the world fall apart, but when one of the newest residents is a corpse, disintegration hits a little too close to home.

The body is Blue and it stirs haunting memories for a long-forgotten actress, two old sole survivors and the rightful heir to Atlantis, et al.

Devised and performed by the co-operative Dido St. Claire, Dead Boys Are Blue is a post-modern weaving together of four stories, performance and songs that explore why it is easier to care for a dead boy than mankind.

Dead Boys Are Blue is a semi-autobiographical work, developed in Launceston, Tasmania and Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
