As a result of some petty infighting amongst the organisers, this year, Dublin will play host to not one, but two gay theatre festivals.
My personal allegiance will be to the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, rather than the Absolut Gay Theatre Festival, for the simple reason that a couple of my friends have shows in the former.
'Fragile', an original play by Aaron Rogers, will run from 3rd - 8th of May at The Cobalt Café. Directed by Aaron and the lovely Roisin Watson, 'Fragile' tells the story of Nick, a young Dubliner struggling to come to terms with his sexuality.
I was fortunate enough to catch Roisin and Aaron's previous collaboration 'Wait! They Don't Love You Like I Love You...' in Novemeber and, if that's anything to go by, 'Fragile' looks set to be one of the highlights of the festival. Or indeed both festivals.
Tickets go on sale later today from www.gaytheatre.ie.
