"Wanna pair of shorts?
Shot of G?
Line of Meth?"
From surgeons to students, couples to kink
Guys that love it
And lost guys longing to be loved
This is an original look into a drug-fuelled, hedonistic, highly secret world of Grindr, and instant gratification
"This is one of the most important plays this reviewer has seen in decades. It shows the penalties we all pay for homophobia and judgmental rejection of a huge segment of society... This is reality without frills and with no sugar coating. It is a gorgeous production" ~ Fringe Review
"The savage rawness of the words is gratifying, alarming, educational, revealing and captivating. The audience is totally, completely swept away in the hedonistic experience of the encounter of these five men, devastatingly intimate. This is as confronting as theatre gets" ~ British Theatre
"'The very best theatre makes the audience think, provokes a reaction deep within you, and 5 Guys Chillin' does all of that. You cannot see it without having a visceral personal reaction to it. It lingers, it stains and it's phenomenally powerful stuff" ~ Steve Stratford, blogger
"This play is absolutely incredible. I went in thinking I was going to be seeing something funny and light-hearted and left feeling stunned. Very graphic and raw - absolutely beautiful piece of verbatim theatre. I'm still fascinated by how real it was many days later!" ~ Shaun Nolan
'The piece [takes interviews] and moulds them into a one-act naturalistic play, as five men gather for a chill and this is where the conflict in so much verbatim theatre lies; there's a delicate balance to be struck between the veracity of the interviews, and the dramatic action of the play. 5 Guys Chillin' manages to achieves this balance with integrity" ~ Exeunt
