The Homosexuals

7:00pm to 8:30pm Thursday 30 March 2017 (Daily event)

Gay newlyweds Warren and Kim have it all – a small dog, a joint gym membership and a 20 square metre 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 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) to venture where many fear to tread, as Declan asks some extraordinarily difficult questions of his own community: White Gay Men.

And when was it, exactly, that gay men stopped throwing bottles and started buying Prosecco?
