Shocked out of his post-adolescent self-obsession by the death of a dear friend, William, a
twenty something inner-city Melburnian, tries to make his way in an unfamiliar world. Lost and lonely he decides the path
to salvation is a pilgrimage to the “Holy Land” – otherwise known as Manchester, the birthplace of his
idol Morrissey and the band that has shaped his life, The Smiths. But first he needs funds to finance his trip and after
a chaotic family lunch his sister Stephanie suggests he might like to try being a support worker for Patrice, a dynamic,
artistic, passionate woman confined to a wheel chair with cerebral palsy. To his surprise William finds Patrice is a fellow
Morrissey-Smiths tragic and a delicate bond begins to grow. William is confronted by some very hard choices as he discovers
that real love is much deeper than physical attraction and the true meaning of friendship. Interweaving the music of Morrissey
and The Smiths, with many classic songs performed live, November Spawned a Monster is a funny, moving and unlikely
love story about how we need to learn life’s lessons, before it’s too late.
