Gaybies tells the story of children raised in rainbow families. This script is drawn straight from interviews with people aged four to forty who have grown up with same-sex parents, surrogate mums and donor dads. These are authentic accounts of family life told with humour, honesty and wisdom.

Written and directed by Helpmann Award-winning director Dean Bryant, the ensemble cast is made up of Cooper George Amai (Stainless Steel Rat, Woyzeck), Sheridan Harbridge (The Speechmaker, Dr Blake Mysteries), Rhys Keir (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Cherry Orchard), Steve Le Marquand (Rake, Two Hands), Zindzi Okenyo (Wonderland, A History of Everything), Olivia Rose (STOP KISS, Packed to the Rafters) and Georgia Scott (This is our Youth, Renoir).

Following rave reviews when it was first staged as a moved reading at Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival in 2013, Dean Bryant is excited to bring this deeply personal and highly topical play to Sydney.
“Gaybies is the perfect answer to anyone who has ever asked, ‘But what about the children?’ It’s sincere, touching, hilarious and heart-breaking,” he said. “It requires a highly talented bunch of actors to do these characters justice and I’m thrilled to have assembled a dream cast which, in a wonderful twist, includes one of the original interviewees.”

Competition closes 30 January at 6pm AEDST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.


Friday 6 February at 8pm
Eternity Playhouse
39 Burton Street, Darlinghurst NSW
