ABOUT THE SHOW
Two men. They flirt. They dance. They fall in love.
House. Dog. Coffee machine. Joint bank accounts.
Work. Routine. Drift. Crisis.
Intimate, poetic and de-centering, Unconditional weaves a compelling tapestry of a queer relationship between a man who identifies as gay and a person whose identity evolves during their marriage…starting as “he”, but now transitioning to “she”, which destablises their union, their belief systems, and their politics.
Each playwright writes for one character in subjective monologue, duelling monologue and dialogue. Told with humour, insight and absolute honesty, Unconditional re-examines and re-defines the nature of love and what we tell ourselves we would accept. Is love really unconditional? Or does it have conditions like everything else?
A post-show Q&A will be held on 01 SEP from 8:35pm – 9:20pm.
Please note, this production contains adult themes, nudity, coarse language, sexual references, conversations around transitioning/gender dysphoria, and mentions of suicide.
