Black Faggot

Black Faggot
It’s not easy being young, gay and Samoan – especially when God and your mother are watching. A parade of colourful characters collides in a series of hilarious and poignant monologues set in Auckland’s Pacific Islands communities. Meet the undercover brother desperate to prove he’s straight, an island mama whose beloved son turns out to be queer and a tough Samoan homo who’s out, proud and in your face. This runaway hit of the Auckland and Melbourne Fringe Festivals is award-winning playwright Victor Rodger’s response to protests against New Zealand’s Marriage Equality Bill. Black Faggot debuts in Edinburgh following sold-out seasons and rave reviews in New Zealand and Australia. Filthy and funny, raw and emotional, this show will make you laugh, cry and believe in the power of love. Shows: Daily from 31 July to 25 August at 5.30pm. No show Mon 11 August Photograph: Taofia Pelesasa. Black Faggot. Oliver Rosser Part of the NZ at Edinburgh season supported by Creative New Zealand. www.nzatedinburgh.co.nz
