Relative Merits

Barry Lowe’s classic gay play has been revived many times in Sydney, but this is its Melbourne premiere.

Written and set in the early nineties, it is a moving and humorous story of a gay footballer and the sudden arrival of his naive and homophobic younger brother he hasn’t seen for ten years. Barry Lowe is one of Australia’s busiest and most prolific gay playwrights and this is one of his best and most popular plays.

One hour of sexy, funny and deeply moving moments starring two of the country’s most exciting young talents, Samuel Welsh and Isaac Broadbent.
