Ricky the Itch is a piece of queer solo performance that combines a youthful coming of age story, with gothic shanty town folk lore. Ricky the Itch presents ‘The Itch’, a well known and commonly feared local cryptid that one day emerged from the Tees. When the story is taken from the locals and told by the monster, the Itch goes on an absurd journey of reclaiming his identity as a putrid creature.
