A series of romantic (mis)adventures in Melbourne’s queer dating scene
“This is a story of Men. and Sex. and Dates. and Love. Fucking Love.” – D

After being uprooted from their place of comfort and being thrown in front of the world’s biggest crisis, D now has to face an even bigger challenge: finding themselves in the 7-time voted “most liveable city in the world”. Will a series of unfortunate relationships really lead them to the sense of self that they’ve lost?

“But the world has shown me that I don’t deserve that. That I will never have that. Because they say so. Because I’m this.” – D

“Six Guys” dives a little deeper into the intersectionality of multiple marginalisations in a world run by men. A hybrid of stand-up and situational comedy, this play finds humour in the harsh realities these people face. Funny, heartfelt, and inspiring, it will leave the audience having a better understanding of people who are not them.

D and their six guys will take you on a hilarious romp that shines a light on a uniquely queer and diverse experience of love, loss, identity, and reinvention.
