Text:Six fresh pieces of New Zealand writing have been selected, workshopped and cast, and are getting the final touches for Auckland Pride’s exciting Legacy Project. Legacy Project was specifically created to provide opportunities for the lgbti community to express unique Kiwi stories on the stage. Founder and Artistic Director Bruce Brown says since its launch in September 2013 there has been an incredible response from willing participants and sponsors. He says the submission process revealed scripts which were compelling and honest which made it very difficult for the panel to select the final six plays for the workshop. “Although it’s only our first year, we’ve been blown away by the huge amount of support from the lgbti community and all the heartfelt stories being shared by the writers,” Brown says. “We are extremely excited for an audience to finally see all the fantastic work everyone involved has put into the project.” Here is a taste of the six pieces which will be on stage at The Basement iduring Auckland Pride next month. From some of Auckland's finest emerging artists come six brand new works, embracing all corners of the queer community, hitting Basement Theatre during Auckland Pride 2014. D’ You Remember? Written by Rhona Vickoce and directed by Sarah Jansen. Four dykes at a wedding; but who catches the bouquet? Full Disclosure. Written by Nathan Joe and directed by Patrick Graham. Tonight’s the night they have sex. There’s just one small problem... Locked Out. Written by Bruce Brown and directed by Jesse Hilford. Sex, connection, identity. We are all searching for something, but not necessarily the same thing. The Playground. Written by Joni Nelson and directed by Roberto Nascimento. Virgin, Badass, Emo, Queen, Failure, Baby: Even the outsiders have their cliques. Rainbows And Cobwebs. Written by Sarah Daymond and directed by Joni Nelson.
