Time Out says

See this award-winning play that examines the friendship between straight and gay best friends

If you missed the Mardi Gras outing of buddy comedy Fag/Stag, you can jump on the encore at Giant Dwarf from April 15-23.

Directed by Les Solomon, he casts Samson Alston – who recently appeared in The Credeaux Canvas and The Shape of Thingsalongside newcomer Ryan Panizza as two best friends, one straight, one gay, both trying to navigate what it means to be a man in contemporary Australia. At times hilarious, it also has its moment of heart-break and everything in between, in a nuanced reckoning with notions of masculinity and all the privilege, but also the struggles, that entails.

It’s the sort of show that holds you in the grip of the hands of its leads, with previous stagings around the country leading to a bundle of awards between them. Don’t miss this tender comedy that picks at the sore truths lurking below first world problems.
