“Please God, make me straight,” prays Christian, a Samoan teen from South Auckland, after marching in a church rally against New Zealand’s marriage equality bill. Playwright Victor Rodger watched the protest unfold and created Black Faggot in response.

The theatrical premier at the Basement Theater was a sold-out hit of the Auckland Fringe Festival in February, winning five awards including a coveted slot in the Melbourne Fringe Festival this September and the Development Award, which will remount the show in Auckland later this year. The production will also travel to Wellington and Sydney.

Multinesia Productions won the Auckland Fringe Award for Best Production: Theater, the Tiki Tour Ready Award supported by Melbourne Fringe Festival and Creative New Zealand, the Development Award, and the Auckland Arts Festival Award. Actors Iaheto Ah Hi (Sione’s Wedding) and Beulah Koale (Shortland Street) were runners up for Best Performance.

Black Faggot was directed by Roy Ward and produced by Karin Williams. The production was funded by Auckland Council’s Arts Alive program and Creative New Zealand with support from Auckland Pride Festival.
