The bus never comes to Ħal Fern. It’s a village cut from the rest of the world, completely forgotten.

But the village has secrets.

Dark secrets it would prefer to keep hidden.

One day a troupe of clowns arrives in Ħal Fern – entertainers who are strikingly different from the rest of the village. Their otherness and playfulness stand out in the mundane streets of Ħal Fern.

They perform “It-Teatru tal-Miskin”, a show that unearths the stories that Ħal Fern had buried deep. The stories of a boy who dared to wear high heels.

It-Teatru tal-Miskin is an original musical by Luke Saydon. It is a queer coming of age story about intolerance and people’s innate fear of ‘the other’. With an accompanying outreach programme, it aims to be a catalyst for the shifting landscape of LGBTQ+ visibility and acceptance in our country.

On Friday 30th September (after the performance), a Taħdita Teatru will be organised with Luke Saydon, Denise Mulholland, & Ruth Borg together with moderator Francesco Grech to discuss the process behind this play, from page to stage.
