‘R’ wakes up on Christmas eve next to ‘L’ - a man he doesn’t know the name of. R has never done this before, and L has done this one too many times. As they piece together their apparent one night stand, R reveals his plan to ‘come out’ to his family at Christmas, and for the next hour, the conversation turns through topics of family, social media, sexuality, and a touch of chlamydia. A new queer play that asks how much easier is it to be honest with someone we don’t know, than ourselves?
"It’s incredibly sweet, delightfully uncomfortable and beautifully vulnerable drama." - Abbie Gallagher, Theatre Travels
"...significantly, it also asks: what does it take to really know ourselves?"
- Erin Middleton, State of the Art
"It is often rare to watch a play that manages to carefully and intricately weave the nuances of identity, family, and relationships so cleverly together." - Mary Ali, Fashion Industry Broadcast

EXTRACT: Itâ€™s dark but also, there are these flashing lights. Coloured strobes. Green and red for Christmas. And in the near darkness as these bodies pulsed against each other and bumped and twisted horribly I saw you. You, you were moving with suchâ€¦ utter disregard. You wereâ€¦ breath. Drunken breath, twisting with a smile on your face.Ethnically charged language, Child abuse

EXTRACT: Okay. Imagine youâ€™re this guy. And youâ€™re living this double life a bit. Thereâ€™s a side of you that you show to your family and your friends and then thereâ€™s another side that you can only show to yourself. And these two lives, theyâ€™re incompatible. You canâ€™t live both lives, you have to choose one.Ethnically charged language, Child abuse
