Big Gay Week
View all events in this series
One of last year’s crowd favourites, the unstoppable cultural phenomenon that is Erotic Fan Fiction returns, with another adults-only night of fantastical tales where anything goes. This time, the Imperial Panda team asked writers they like to write a short piece of filth about a celebrity or fictional character, which they then read in public. Four writers turn their craft to a night of smut and hilarity that’s same-same but different.
This is a free event. Booking recommended.
Philip Brophy is a respected academic, filmmaker, writer and musician. He writes for Frieze, The Wire, Film Comment, and Real Time.
Jen Cloher is one of Australia’s premiere songwriters.
Virginia Gay is a performer for stage and television.
Zoë Coombs Marr is a performer, writer, artist and comedian. She grew up in Grafton, where she and her best friend staged a musical instead of going to schoolies week.
Zoë has performed stand up comedy extensively in Australia, London and New York. Her solo show, Trigger Warning, won the 2016 Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show as well as the Golden Gibbo, and two Green Room Awards. It was also nominated for Best Show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama.
Nick Coyle is a writer and theatre-maker who lives in Sydney.
At the Wheeler Centre we like to combine the celebratory with the cerebral. Between Midsumma and Mardi Gras, join us for the politics and the writing, the romance and the taboos, the agonies and the ecstasies of being queer.
