Abstract

This work is a creative and Foucauldian-style ethical intervention into the author’s childhood memories. Specifically, it re-imagines a moment in the author’s youth when he first acknowledged his sexuality and gender difference. The script fuses non-fiction and fiction methodologies to produce a dramatic narrative. The finished work is neither fact nor wholly imagined. The script was developed using an interdisciplinary approach including factual research (evidence from author diaries and interviews with family members etc) and fiction techniques such as associative and stream-of-consciousness writing. In this way, a script was produced that adheres to the core components of the 'true' story whilst refiguring others to emphasise aspects of the author’s experience that were wholly internal and even non-verbal (associations, imaginings, latent feelings etc). The result is a work that operates both as memoir and as an intervention into memory.
