'And then I found me is the triumphant story of Noel Tovey’s stellar career in London as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, director and curator. For more than 30 years, his acclaimed stage productions reached audiences across Europe, South Africa and Australia. Martin Luther King’s assassination, the dismantling of apartheid, the criminalisation of homosexuality and the rise of AIDS are the backdrop to this bold and deeply moving recollection of glamour and politics'.

'Looking back on his career, Noel Tovey writes: ‘I could work in three languages. I had dined in the finest restaurants in Europe and America with pop stars and royalty and I had a career in the theatre that most Australians would envy.’ The man who wrote these words grew up an abused and neglected child.
