Presented by Griffin Theatre Company in association with Malthouse Theatre
Gay newlyweds Warren and Kim have it all – a small dog, a joint gym membership and a 20sqm apartment with stunning views. But in 2017 if you offend the wrong person your life will go straight down the Twitter-toilet. So on the night of Mardi Gras, when caught wearing a compromising costume, Kim’s got to think fast. How will he placate an angry radical-queer academic who already loathes gay men? Lies, lies and more lies. Throw in an Instagram affair, a missing baggie of cocaine, and a burglar (naturally), and you’ve got a very Potts Point version of a classic farce, laced with black-comic political intrigue.
Director Lee Lewis reunites with Declan Greene (Summertime in the Garden of Eden, Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography) to venture where many fear to tread, as Declan asks some extraordinarily difficult questions of his own community: White Gay Men. How was marriage ordained as the #1 LGBTIQA issue of our time? Why do some colours in the rainbow flag get to shine brighter than others? And when was it, exactly, that gay men stopped throwing bottles and started buying Prosecco?
The Homosexuals is very funny. It’s potentially very offensive. But one thing’s certain – it’ll have everybody talking.
