I just like you | a gay myth

An intimate two-hander about the messy complexities of the contemporary gay dating experience. When these two find themselves drawn to one another, they find that they are looking for different things. One, recently out of a LTR, just wants sex; the other, after a years-long string of hook ups, just wants a LTR again. So they decide to do that progressive thing that gay people do – you know, have a meaningful friendship while also having loads of sex, but without catching feelings. There’s no way that could go wrong, right?

This play is filled with great conversational writing and hits home for the audience members with similar experiences. Beautifully performed by two actors with so much trust and connection with each other.
A real treat of the fringe.

Gosh this was so good - really hit home in the best possible way. Rarely does a show present the miserable intricacies and seemingly never-ending loop that queer relationships entail, but this one knocks it out the park. The confidence of the performers is outstanding and everyone involved should be incredibly proud of this brilliant show 5/5

Such an amazing show! The actors had so much energy and chemistry as they guided us through the story. Never a dull moment - jumping from very funny to deeply touching. Can’t recommend it enough!

A beautiful story reflecting on very relatable aspects of queer dating. Intimate, emotional and engaging.
Gorgeous acting and characterisation from both the actors with a clear story and goal, the elements of physical theatre just elevated the piece even more.
Highly recommend this show. Bravo.

Such a beautiful show. The writing and direction is really clever and considered, the actors were so in sync it was like watching one actor. The script itself is both funny, and painful in its observations; and at times quite heartbreaking. It's also lovely to see a show match its intimate space in creating such an intimate, personal world for the audience, while not shying away from being bold and brave in both script and performance. Highly recommend, if you're looking for a really excellent piece of theatre.

I thought this was a brilliant play: well written, fast paced, intimate (yet respectfully staged and
directed for a small venue), and wonderfully performed! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing! Really thoughtfully written, with hillarious moments. Painfully observant at points!

A new play that shows the pushing & pulling of a modern relationship and polyamory that runs deep in the LGBT+ community.

I just like you | a gay myth rolls breathlessly through gay relationship myths and truths in brief scenes which condense multiple varieties into pithy, witty theatre.
