“He would kiss me first. I wouldn’t kiss him until he would.” 1989. Lawler, Samuel & Carter spend their final year at boarding school holding back their love under the smoke of cigarettes on brick walls and the sounds of Joy Division and The Cure. 2024. Thirty-five years they’ve been ripped apart by the words not said, brought back together for one final chance. Winner of the 2023 QPAS Award (Midsumma Festival), WATERFOWL by Callum Mackay (The Last Train to Madeline, Brittany & The Mannequins) is about the ongoing crisis that is Australian masculinity, and the role that sexuality plays in healing the generational curse of unexpressed male love. Directed by Hayden Tonazzi (This Genuine Moment, Pickled كبيس ) this work is a queer epic with two intersecting timelines, asking us the question: will our shame ever let us grow? Callum Mackay & Hayden Tonazzi proudly present the World Premiere of award-winning Waterfowl, a play that is urgent for its affirmation of progress and healing in queer men who are fighting to accept themselves amongst the violence of shame within other men.
