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. Jump forward one month: Warren is attending a party in a highly offensive costume. Kim is interviewing a highly offend-able academic. You’d hope their paths wouldn’t cross. But this is a farce, so they definitely do.

Set during Sydney’s Mardi Gras this comedy of mistaken identities takes the farce to new extremes.

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.
