        And I Was Like         Another Dead Fag         Queen         Riding in Cars with (Mostly Straight) Boys



And I Was Like

Synopsis:
When Philip meets Trace, his speechlessness is charming, endearing and just a bit unusual. But when months later his mute boyfriend won't tell him why he's not talking Philip tries everything he to fix Trace and break the silence. And I Was Like is a fascinating look at communication in a relationship and how desperate we are to understand each other.

Another Dead Fag is a story of gay teen suicide. It takes place at Seb's wake after his suicide, and those closest to him; his cousin Mordecai, his sister Abigail and his boyfriend David gather together to pick up what's left behind.

Queen

Synopsis:
Smoke Labours Productions is proud to present this new play by Sam Brooks that puts the everyday plights of the gay man under the spotlight and explores the contradictions, difficulties and joys of being a young gay man in today's society. Queen is all the parts of being gay that people don't talk about: the community, the everyday mundanities and missing out on vital parts of life that come so easily to everybody else. Queen is a voice where there needs to be one. It's angry, it's funny, it's unflinching and it gets to what it means to be gay here and now.

Riding in Cars with (Mostly Straight) Boys

Synopsis:
Kyle is an everyday young gay guy: Over-neurotic, over-enthusiastic and over falling in love with straight guys. Or so he thinks, until the object of his affections turns out to be not as straight as Kyle thought he was. Riding in Cars with (Mostly Straight) Boys is just your average gay-straight bromantic comedy with a twist; it's in a car in a carpark near you! Written by award-winning playwright Sam Brooks (Mab's Room, Queen, Another Dead Fag) and starring Dan Veint (Romeo and Juliet: A Love Song) and Calum Gittins (Hamlet), the audience is invited into the action as we see Kyle and his relationships play out in real-time in and around the cars of his youth. It's an hour of hilarity, heartbreak and homosexuality, coming to Wellington Fringe and Auckland Pride! - http://www.theatreview.org.nz/reviews/production.php?id=3617
