“Tunks holds up a mirror to our society and he does it successfully” – Aussie Theatre
In 2012, “37 Ways To Say I’m Gay”, premiered in Melbourne, becoming the most successful production ever held Downstairs at Alma’s. In 2016, an abridged version, “24 Ways To Say I’m Gay”, sold out at the Gold Coast Arts Centre.
“…is a simple, yet honest production about issues that in the current national climate have perhaps never been of more relevance. Far from being stereotypical, superficial portrayals, its gay characters represent hints of discrete, rounded characters, which cements its artistic importance as an opportunity to educate and celebrate in relation to important social issues.” – Blue Curtains Brisbane
The show will finally have its Sydney premiere at Limelight on Oxford to celebrate the 2019 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.
94 characters, 29 short plays, 12 actors, 37 Ways to Say “I’m Gay”. These are stories of coming out, 37 different ways. From prehistoric to futuristic, from America to Australia, from city to county and from comedy to drama, these are stories with heart. Playful, political and passionate, there’s something for everyone in this show.
Written and directed by Wayne Tunks, the show will feature 12 amazing performances by Mark Anderson, Emma Louise, Rhiaan Marquez, Suz Mawer, Jacinta Moses, Joshua North, Brendan Paul, Anton Smilek, Wayne Tunks, Andrew Wang and Simeon Yialeloglou, with lighting design by Louise Mason.
