Soho Boy – Ed Fringe 2022

Soho Boy: theSpace @ Symposium Hall – Annexe

23rd August 2022

★★★★

Soho Boy by Paul Emelion-Daly follows Spencer who leaves home and hits Soho in a whirlwind journey of love, laughter, heartbreak and happiness. This modern tale focuses on Spencer as he enters the gay scene, working, partying and busking before falling in love and stumbling into the darker side of Soho.

This is a modern tale of the gay scene which can be harsh and lonely surrounded by glamour, sex and songs. With the recent rise in shows of this subject matter including the smash hit TV programme It’s A Sin and Cruise, the one-man play currently in the West End Soho Boy is bound to attract attention. It is certainly a great concept and it is well played out through the journey (and many costume changes) of the character in such a short amount of time and in a small venue. Spencer is a believable and relatable character played well by Owen Dennis. There are moments of comedy as well as emotion giving the audience a story full of twists and turns.

The score is modern and works well with a range of upbeat and more emotive songs. Clever lyrics tell the story clearly and add humour. Soho Boy definitely deserves a place at the Fringe and can easily be developed further. One to watch out for.
