TWO of Australia’s sharpest young writers, Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Chris Isaacs, are two unreliable narrators telling the same story from different points of view.

FAG/STAG is a truthful but comic insight into the mind of the modern Australian man.

Corgan and Jimmy are BFFs.

Their lives are filled by Tinder, Grindr, white lies, big nights and too many pints. lawn bowls, Donkey Kong, wiping vomit into the shower drain. unanswered texts, bad sex and moving back in with Mum and Dad.

In the month preceding the wedding of Corgan’s ex-girlfriend, the two struggle to get their life in gear enough to even hire a suit.

It is part of the Fishtrap Feast season which also includes music by DJ Glasshouse for an hour before and after the performance, a pop up bar and free nibbles and sweet treats.

The two are winners of the best performance Melbourne Fringe 2015, Melbourne Fringe Tour Read Award Fringe World 2015, best theatre 2016 Adelaide Fringe Weekly Award and nominated for best writing, best ensemble, best production, independent theatre category and green reoom awards 2015.
