Everything is great for Corey.
He loves his wife.
He’s learning to talk to his son.
He got promoted at work.
Life couldn’t be better.

But when Corey’s sitting at his son’s hospital bed, everything he used to rely ​on ​is about to be taken away. Deeply buried secrets bubble to the surface when no one’s looking and history will repeat itself.

Based on the gay hate crime epidemic that blighted Sydney’s coastline during the 1970s to 1990s, resulting in as many as 88 murders and 30 unsolved cases, this one-man show presents a gruesome Australian history lesson.

EXTRACT: Sean talked about the thrill of it but it wasn’t thrilling - it was unexpected. Freeing. Like a rollercoaster ride. Both terrifying and liberating. Structured and weightless. You think about what you are about to do, and you hear the sound of the locks on the breaks letting go and you count down those three extra counts before you actually move. And you give over to something you have no control over. Your limbs loose, your sounds altered. You are dancing, flying, A superhero. Full of power you never knew. Unable to be taken down. Euphoric with each ride.
