SYNOPSIS

The true gay backstory of the story of 'Pinocchio'.

Before Disney, before Carlo Collodi's chlldren's book, there was a man named Pino Lorenzino.

Drawing directly from Lorenzino's diaries, this dirty, sweaty two-hander brings to life the story behind the story.

A tale of love, and abuse, and art, and of how to be a good boy.
