STAGE

 

From city to city, audiences have lined up to join Shawn Hitchins and his Ginger Nation. Having debuted at Edinburgh to standing-room-only houses and unprecedented media coverage, the redheaded comedian continues to spread his candid and profane story of would-be fatherhood. Hitchins’ fiery account as a sperm donor to a lesbian couple is hilarious and profane. On his personal mission to repopulate the earth with redheads, he recounts memories from adolescence, brushes with celebrity, feats of masturbation, and discovers what it means to be ginger and proud.


ALL HAIL! THE RED, ORANGE & PALE!
PRAISE FOR GINGER NATION:

“A really engaging and wonderful storyteller… quite surprisingly, rather moving.”
– GAY TIMES UK

“Witty and ribald, Hitchins also throws a few curveballs as he contemplates the notion of becoming a parent, even tangentially, and learning to grow up when he least expected it.”
– CHRONICLE HERALD

“a polished entertainer who excels in masturbatory humour (in the best sense) but is also movingly vulnerable as he talks about the isolation of growing up different.”
– THE COAST, PATRICIA DENYKO

“Everyone and anyone will find something in it to enjoy, but queer viewers may find a particular resonance in his honest examination of what it means for a young gay man to become a biological father, extending not just the Ginger Nation, but the parameters and possibilities of the human family itself.”
–THE COAST, HUGO DANN

“Relatable yet wildly unique, funny yet moving, delightful in the moment yet thought- provoking after the lights went off.”
– MOONEY ON THEATRE

“It’s a skillfully written script and his timing is nearly always pitch perfect with plenty of emotional oomph.”
– FRINGEREVIEW

“A refreshingly candid story that exposes the universal human desire to start a family.”
– WEST END WILMA

“Hitchins is a brave enough performer to not just hit the audience with a genuine emotional blinder, but also to successfully pull them back into the safety of laughter afterwards.”
– BROADWAY BABY

“a beautifully polished comedy of wit and silliness, but it’s also incredibly uplifting. In a world where the news is often about violence, it’s wonderful to remember that people also have the capacity to help each other bring children into the world, surrounded in love, optimism and laughter.”
– THE WAY I SEE I
