Playwright and performer Johnnie Walker charms audiences with the hilarious and heartbreaking story of Nicholas: a 12-year-old with red hair whose dad just remarried, making him a redheaded stepchild. Literally. And tomorrow at lunch, the biggest boy in grade six plans to beat him up. Walker plays Nicholas; his ex‐Jehovah’s witness golf-pro stepmom, Mary-Anne; and his fabulous alter ego and imaginary friend, Rufus Vermilion.  Redheaded Stepchild is a queer coming-of-age story that tackles adolescent bullying head-on with humour, heart and honesty.
