2017

Welcome to LEGACY PROJECT 4, the fourth year of our continuing mission to help up-and-coming voices within our diverse queer community to develop and share their own stories on stage.

To date, we’ve helped stage eighteen unique and personal stories and we’re once again proud to present these six new stories to you. I'm always blown away by the passion, creativity and energy that all our writers, directors and cast members have for these new works. Without you, this would not be possible so thank you.

First Love
Writen by Aatir Zaidi, directed by Kat Glass
Featuring Agustya Chandra (UMAIR) & Ravi Gurunathan (REHAN)

Remember your first love. It’s often memorable and always hard to let go of. In his search for his own divine love, Rehan has fallen for his friend Umair. But could he feel the same way back?

Coming Out Night

Featuring Hong Jian (GRACE'S DAD), Kyrus Watson (JAKE), Phillip Good (HARRY), Sam Wilson (GRACE) & Sharon Robinson (JAKE'S MUM)

Eternity
Writen by David Blakey, directed by Ryan Thornhill
Featuring David Butler (HENRY) & Mike Howell (ANDREW)

If you know you can’t be with someone, is it easy to say you’ll always love them? Andrew is about to find out if love really can last forever when Henry has an important announcement to make.

Callum In The Aftermath
Writen by Prior McRae, directed by Cole Meyers
Featuring Rhi Munro (NURSE), Jo Clark (TRACEY) & Prior McRae (CALLUM)

When a hospital visit confronts a mother and son with the truth, they are forced to see how much they have been holding in - and how much they need to let go.

Daddy Issues
Writen by Pedro Diegues, directed by Jake Love
Featuring Joe Nathan (PETE), Steve Ciprian (SIMON) & Steven Glyde (RAY)

Arriving back home to reality after their not-so-relaxing holiday in Thailand, Pete and Ray discover the worst part about traveling is having to unpack all your emotional baggage.

Two Lovers Sit On A Park Bench Holding Hands In The Moonlight
Writen by Hannah Owen Wright, directed by Rachael Longshaw-Park
Featuring Ben Black (HIM) & Maya Wyatt (HER)

A man and a woman sit together on a beautiful night and love is in the air, or is it? Can romance be that straight forward when the fight for a sexual identity gets in the way?
