Fucking Men

by Joe DiPietro

 

6 February – 10 March

 

An Australian premiere, presented as part of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras

 

“Why does any guy have sex with strangers? Cause it feels fan-fuckin’-tastic. That’s it. End of story.”

A sharp, provocative and very funny play dealing with a chain of hook-ups amongst a group of gay men.

American writer Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) has loosely adapted La Ronde, Arthur Schnitzler’s notorious 19th century satire about sexual adventuring, and turned it into a revealing panorama of contemporary gay life.

Take ten guys: The Escort, The Soldier, The Tutor, The Uni Student, The Married Guy (and his partner), The Porn Star, The Playwright, The Actor and The Journalist, put them into a series of one-on-one encounters, and the result is a very sexy, confronting and thought-provoking comedy of gay sexual manners.

Like good sex, each moment leaves you wanting more.  But underneath the hot man-on-man action is an ironic and truthful look at the conflict many gay men experience between the desire for monogamous love and the thrill of sexual freedom.
