May Contain Traces of Nuts
Evan, 22, has big ideas about what it means to be a man. He didn’t get them from his Dad, or from the teachers at school. He got them from a poster hanging above his bed.
“Nuts” features posters of action heroes and popstars coming alive, a hapless father popping pingers for the first time, and an honest and heartfelt conversation about what makes young men tick.
A watermelon and a man walk into a bar. Neither of them drink because he’s breastfeeding.
“Immaculate Confection” is ripe with watermelons being breast-fed, cooed to sleep and pushed in strollers. Chris, 18, is participating in a psychology experiment when he discovers the true meaning of attachment.
What it’s all about?
The Food & Masculinity double is a quirky exploration of youth, manhood and coming of age through the eyes of young Brisbane Playwrights Share House Theatre Company (Nuts) & Josh Lyons (Confection). Both shows have different casts and set but are linked in their uses of food to tackle complex ideas in an accessible way.
It’s filled with energy, partying, passion, and most importantly, conversation.
