By Gavin Roach. New Theatre / Sydney Fringe Festival. September 13 – 18, 2016.
Gavin Roach first measured his penis at the age of 12 and found it wanting. And it hasn’t grown much longer when years later he starts trying to use it with other men.
This gay tale of his teenage innocence, sexual exploration and growing body shame is the meat of Roach’s self-devised work for the Sydney Fringe, the second in his Anxiety Trilogy. The first, apparently much-applauded, was I Can’t Say the F- word.
