The Last Great Hunt Presents: Fag/Stag
19 September 2015
Fringe Hub, Rehearsal Room
to 3 October
Fag/Stag is written and performed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Chris Isaacs, from Perth company The Last Great Hunt, and is already one of the unmissable shows of this year's Fringe.
Corgan and Jimmy are best friends and tell the story of the weeks leading up to a wedding (of Corgan's ex and the only woman Jimmy kissed) from their own perspectives.
Its complex and authentic exploration of masculinity, male friendship, misogyny and internalised homophobia is at times debilitating and heartbreaking and still hilarious and heartwarming.
With remarkable performances and immaculate writing, it finds the deepest secrets and motivations of its characters and left me understanding a little bit more about young men and their friendships.
