What's On

FAG/STAG
 

Presented by Griffin Theatre Company and The Last Great Hunt
Written and performed by Chris Isaacs and Jeffrey Jay Fowler

Jimmy and Corgan are BFFs. Hurtling towards their 30s, life is filled with a mix of Tinder, Grindr, binge-drinking and half-hearted hook-ups. As the wedding of Corgan’s ex looms and Jimmy’s love life stagnates, the two struggle to get their lives in working order. FAG/STAG is one story, told twice, from the perspective of two (very) unreliable narrators. Brimming with laughs, tenderness and quarter-life-crisis ennui, this is a brutally honest and hilarious exploration of contemporary masculinity and what it means to have a best mate when you’re stuck being your worst self.

‘Fowler and Isaacs are two of our most adept young writers and FAG/STAG crackles with their talent.’ ★★★★ – The West Australian
