A brutally honest and hilarious exploration of contemporary masculinity.

Jimmy and Corgan are BFFs. Hurtling towards their 30s, life is filled with a mix of Tinder, Grindr, binge-drinking and half-hearted hook-ups. As the wedding of Corganís ex looms and Jimmyís love life stagnates, the two struggle to get their lives in working order. FAG/STAG is one story, told twice, from the perspective of two (very) unreliable narrators. Brimming with laughs, tenderness and quarter-life-crisis ennui, this is a brutally honest and hilarious exploration of contemporary masculinity and what it means to have a best mate when youíre stuck being your worst self. 

Written and Performed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Chris Isaacs
Sound Designer Brett Smith
