SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
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 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 throughout the 1970s and 1990s, resulting in as many as 80 murders and 30 unsolved cases, this one-man show presents a gruesome Australian history lesson.
