Starring a who's who of Australian stage and screen, Gaybies promises to be a stand out at this year Midsumma Festival.
Staged in MTC's astonishing Sumner Theatre, Gaybies is a special 25th birthday commission from Midsumma.
Gaybies is a collection of real-life stories from children of same-sex parents, surrogate mums, donor dads, co-parents and guardians. Funny, charming, sad and inspiring, Gaybies is a show for everyone who cares for, or wants to care for our greatest asset, children.
27 people aged 3-40 were interviewed, with experience of growing up with a gay parent. Gaybies is the result of those interviews. Using only their words and a brilliant group of performers, Gaybies comes alive at the MTC's Sumner Theatre for six shows only
