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.
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 will have a development showing in Sydney on November 21st, 2019. If you would like to be in the audience for this very special event please contact producer Robbi James at producer(at)companyrogues.com
Company of Rogues is a proud maker of independent theatre in Sydney, made possible with the support of the Inner West Council, City of Sydney and our producer residency at Critical Stages Touring.
