Warren and Kim are happily married—or as happily ‘married’ as two rich, white gay men in Australia can be. Perusing a dinner menu at a pub one night, they are mortally offended by the dinner special: ‘Faggots—with mashed potato and gravy.’
Flash forward one month. The two men are preparing for a party in highly offensive costumes when they are surprised by an unexpected guest: a highly offend-able academic. To survive this night with their PC reputations intact, these homosexuals will have to negotiate a moral minefield (in heels). The result is a farce of epic proportions.
As one-half of queer theatre outlaws Sisters Grimm, playwright Declan Greene (I Am A Miracle, Calpurnia Descending) has made his name toying with the subversive. With The Homosexuals, he takes the comedy of errors and lets it swerve across the road like a drunken driver, creating a howlingly funny hour of blistering satire that deals equally vicious blows to left and right wing hypocrisy.
The Homosexuals, or ‘Faggots’ is at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre from February 17 to March 12, before moving to Sydney’s Griffin Theatre. Daily Review has THREE double passes to give away to the final preview on Tuesday, February 21, at 6.30pm.
