Gal Pals

You can, if you want.

Two weeks in conversion therapy. Kat wants to be there, Hez thought it was a leadership camp, and Sloane’s brought care packages. In a whirlwind of smuggled phones, attempted escapes, punishment essays and betrayals, five queer kids find their own. It’s self-hatred and its religious trauma, but in a fun way! We promise!
 
Award-winning playwright Sam Nerida explores in this dark and heartfelt comedy the beauty of the queer experience and the fierceness of found family. Bringing together generations of Boorloo’s queer makers, Gal Pals pays homage to the complexity of figuring yourself out in a world that doesn’t have a lot of space for you. We watch these five queer overcome obstacles not only in their environment, but in themselves, to build a community that will weather any storm.
 
Gal Pals was seeded through projects at WA Youth Theatre Company in 2019 and 2022.
