The Effects of Time Travel on Neurotic Homos – Toronto Fringe 2013 Press Release

From Press Release


A new comedy about getting older and questionably wiser
“If you kill a butterfly in the past, will there be dinosaurs in the future?”
One of the possible Effects of Time Travel on Neurotic Homos
You wake up one day in a chasm of space.  The air is heavy with the smell of time travel.  You are alone….kind of.  You are 15 years old, young and full of idealistic notions of art and your future.  Beside you stands yourself at 25, a self-proclaimed marketing genius that relishes in the perils of modern day cleaning products circa 2003.  You are both there with yourself at 35, sexually charged and unemployed with an iPhone.  Welcome to the Effects of Time Travel on  Neurotic Homos, a sharp witted comedy about personal identity and how it evolves with age.
During the flurry of media attention for the “It Gets Better” project aimed at LGBT youth, playwright Neil Cameron (The Man on My Face-Toronto Fringe 2011) asked himself “Did it get better?”  What would an interaction between himself at defining moments of his life result in?  What would they really think of each other and the choices they have made?  Neil and company take a hard and fast look through his life at different stages with hilarious insights that beg the question that is central to all of us: “What am I doing with my life?”
A love letter to cleaning products, complete with sex, drugs and Linda Ronstadt, The Effects of Time Travel on Neurotic Homos promises an edgy trip to the past via the future.
