Reviews

"A play with a healthy brimming heart, not to be missed!"

Steve Zipper

"Sharp. Well shaped. Fast paced."

Jason Blake, Sydney Morning Herald

"If ever there was an argument for gay marriage, this is it. If ever there was a bevvy of talent as good as this, I would be surprised"

Table Talk: Bob Ellis on Film and Theatre

"Gaybies comes highly recommended first and foremost for its educational value. The best theatre educates and makes you better understand that which isn’t in your direct line of experience. Gaybies is also simply enjoyable theatrical entertainment with funny stories and good acting and lovable characters."

Maryann Wright, Australian Arts Review

"Timely, relevant, and enjoyable."

Suzanne Rath, Artshub

"5 stars. Their stories are endlessly fascinating."

Scott Wallace, Sydney Scoop
