Award-winning director Shane Bosher [Cock, Angels in America, A Streetcar Named Desire] returns to Q Theatre to direct this brilliantly provocative take on that four-letter word called love.
Um… Yes, we’ve been a community since
Since Stonewall certainly
Harvey Milk probably
Ancient Greece maybe.
Equality is here. Yeah, so now what? As the pendulum of progress continues to swing, a first date at a New York bar starts two men on a fearless, funny and fragmented journey leading up to a historic moment of change.
Exploding attitudes, emotions and prejudices that sit at the heart of most-slash-every relationship, this dazzling kaleidoscope of a play asks us all the question – are personal and political choices really all that different? And is monogamy just monotony?
No-fault hookups, marriage equality, poppers and self-outing teenagers. This is a post-gay guide for survival.
Presented by arrangement with Samuel French
...Theatre everyone can enjoy ... Heart-wrenching and immersive.
...A taut and terrific production with crackling dialogue. Go and see it! Kino kē!
...Breathtaking ... a gripping dive into the stormy realm of intimate relationships, making a profound statement about being true to oneself.
...A deeply affecting night at the theatre with sensitive performances from some knockout actors. It’s awesome mahi. See it before it closes.
JONATHAN BIELSKI of AUCKLAND ARTS FESTIVAL
...Obscenely good ... Moving, vital, witty and rapturous.
