The Hawaii Premieres of Black Faggot & Puzzy
Tomorrow we open two clever and rancorous one-act comedies in the production: Black Faggot Puzzy.   

 

In Black Faggot, Victor Rodger introduces us to a chaotic mix of men enduring a period of self-discovery and celebration of their sexual identity.

 

Victor Rodger also wrote My Name is Gary Cooper, which received great acclaim when Kumu Kahua Theatre presented it to sold out houses in 2015.  Black Faggot has been called “wonderfully poignant, extremely brave and often confronting” (Broadway Baby) and “funny and heartfelt… fast and furious” (The Guardian).

 

Written by Kiki feat. Victor Rodger, Puzzy is a coming-of-age story of a young Pacific Island woman, grappling with the reality of her sexuality and the pressure of generations of dogma.

 

Puzzy had its world premiere at the Auckland Pride Festival in 2016. Theatreview called it “Brave, engaging and necessary.”  Pantograph Punch said, “Puzzy is a show that should be seen.”

 

Please note: These shows are intended for mature audiences only and may not be suitable for more sensitive viewers.
