A tale of gay caravan park love will spice up Sydney’s theatre scene this summer.

Directed by David Koumans, Parkie tells the complicated story of Adam and his troublesome love interest Matt, a local boy fresh out of prison.

“It’s a study of the human condition and the Australian mindset, dreams and aspirations — the highs and lows that every man feels,” Koumans said.

“It is a beautiful story that I felt had to be told. The play has themes of mateship, love and no matter how bad things can get, true friendship will prevail.”

Showing at Tap Gallery, the play is loosely based on the life of playwright Daniel Hayward.

“It also focuses on the humorous and light side of coming out, like the first time you told your best mate about the trade in the toilet cubicle or in this case behind the packing shed on the farm,” Koumans added.

info: Parkie plays until Sunday, December 20. Tickets are $21. Visit www.tapgallery.org.au
