Presented by FUGUE, a company that celebrates making unique, explosive, socially responsible theatre,Court My Crotch is a bold and ambitious work that looks at investigating and incorporating real first-hand Australian stories. Through a process of interviews with the sporting and LGBTQIA+ communities, the production will utilize the structure of a tennis match and the performance style of drag.
Audiences will be thrown into the fast-paced action of this complex social issue and be compelled to think and challenge their attitudes and beliefs towards inclusion and discrimination within sporting and cultural groups.
“We aim through this show to address the inclusion issues currently faced by LGBTQI+ people in sports in Australia and across the globe and begin an important conversation about the effects of this exclusion, and how it permeates broader society.” – James McMillan, Director & Writer
