cavemxn by Angus Cameron
"a genuinely subversive erotic carousel" - The Age
Mike, Tim, Chris and Oscar are friends. Sort of. They definitely know each other.
Over the span of five years and three continents, these four crash in and out of each others lives, hurtling through hook-ups, raves, saunas and each other. As the bonds between them are pulled into focus, each will have to confront within themselves the reality of who they are and what they want.
"Angus Cameron’s cavemxn is, despite its specificity, a fine play about being human now." - Stage Whispers
"Following a quartet of gay characters connected by lust, loneliness and love, Angus Cameron’s Cavemxn explores lives shaped by contemporary hook-up culture with unflinching wit – and although it is limned by tragic events and melodramatic flourishes, the dominant mode is a vigorous, unsentimental style of existential sex comedy." - The Age
"A tale that will stand the test of time but still showcases a modern experience for the LGBTQ+ community – Cavemxn is funny, sexy and clever." - Milk Bar Mag
As 2022 was the 40th anniversary of the first diagnosis of HIV/AIDS in Australia, one dollar of every ticket sold was donated to Thorne Harbour Health, to help them continue their fight for a future free of HIV.
