The Six Guys an Immigrant Trans Person of Colour Will Date in Melbourne


Mon Feb 06 2023 at 07:30 pm to Sun Feb 12 2023 at 04:00 pm


La Mama HQ | Melbourne, VI

After being uprooted from their place of comfort and being thrown in front of the world's biggest crisis, D now has to face an even bigger challenge: finding themselves in the 7-time voted "most liveable city in the world". Will a series of unfortunate relationships really lead them to the sense of self that they have lost?

"6 Guys" dives a little deeper into the intersectionality of multiple marginalization in a world run by men. A hybrid of stand-up and situational comedy, this play finds humour in the harsh realities these people face. Funny, heartfelt, and inspiring, it will leave the audience having a better understanding of people who are not them.
