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.
