Finalist – 2020 Queer Playwriting Award
Join us at Gasworks Arts Park in Melbourne where Gravity is one of four works to be presented as part of the 2020 Midsumma Queer Playwriting Award Showcase.
The Rogues’ presentation at QPAS has been made possible with the support of CreateNSW, the arts, screen and culture funding body of the NSW Government. We heartily thank them for their support!
From Company of Rogues (Gravity Guts, Boy Out of the Country) and award-winning director Anthony Skuse (WINK, Caress/Ache) comes a world premiere drama about finding yourself, and finding yourself falling apart.
Nashville salesman Christopher has been married to Heather for a decade. He’s not there a lot thanks to work, but then she always has the tv for company. Then Christopher meets David. Beautiful David. David, who changes everything.
Exploring the forces that draw us to each other, tear us asunder, and sometimes leave us adrift, Kentucky-born playwright Bradford Emore’s debut work is a deeply personal, utterly unapologetic story of one man’s need to understand who he is, and what love looks like when gender is only part of the question.
The work was previously selected and presented for the 2019 Mardi Gras Playlist event curated by Director Kate Gaul, where it was presented as a staged reading.
Gravity is currently in development for production in 2020/2021. The work enjoyed a development showing in Sydney on November 21st, 2019 and will be on stage at Gasworks Arts Park for the Queer Playwriting Award Showcase on January 28th.
