LEOPARD PRINT LOINCLOTH - By Jake Stewart

BY Kissing Booth Productions | 08-Jan-2020
This play is about what happens when you leave a bunch of guys in a room together. This play is about stubble and kindness and that hot guy you saw on the train and the way that his chest smells. This play is about boys and this play is about hating yourself. This play is about plays about men being the worst thing ever. This play is about falling in love too quickly and too loudly and how a man and his cheekbones can upend your entire life. This play is about men. From the writer of ‘Fraternal’, ‘Boys Have Skin’, and ‘The Helendale Nude Footy Calendar’.

LEOPARD PRINT LOINCLOTH - By Jake Stewart
Billy Hennessy, 2019
Following sellout seasons of The Helendale Nude Footy Calendar and Fraternal, boundary-pushing queer theatre company Kissing Booth return to the Midsumma Festival to present their latest work, in association with Theatre Works. This time they’re turning their thirst for provocation and liberation on the modern Australian man.

Leopard Print Loincloth is a dirty, hilarious, brutally honest jog through the prickly field of contemporary Australian masculinity. Taking inspiration from country music, #ToxicMasculinity, and Nick Riewoldt’s nudes, Leopard Print Loincloth examines the requirements, expectations, and idiosyncrasies that come with manhood.

Leopard Print Loincloth was developed in collaboration with a community of over 60 Melbourne men, and is led by the award-winning creative team of Dominic Weintraub and Jake Stewart.

Inspired by a symphony of diverse testimonies, Leopard Print Loincloth is a fragmented invitation to spend some time with what’s underneath the flannel and the business shirts.
