Exploring the intersection of one young mans identities as gay, queer, hard-of-hearing and deaf, Sam Martins powerful autobiographical one-man show takes us on a journey of coming out in two worlds during the 2017 marriage equality plebiscite. Looking back on his experience and self-identity with new insight and clarity, Sams stories draw upon his rawest coming-of-age moments being closeted during the debate, coming out, finding first love, his years of speech pathology, hearing devices and ultimately finding confidence and pride in who he is. In development with director Dan Graham and award-winning producer Andrew Lee, Sam I Am is being presented for two nights only supported by the Flying Nun at Brand X program. Tickets are strictly limited to this very first opportunity to see the work in-progress before a future season. Sam I Am proudly champions diverse artists, creatives and their stories. Dan, a neurodiverse gay-identifying man, is a highly-recognised theatre Director and Disability Arts Advocate, who has worked both nationally and internationally. Sam, a film student at AFTRS, is a Hard of Hearing gay-identifying man and a recent Auslan user. Both have a passion for disability and queer representation in the arts.Sam I Am In-Progress ShowingsTime & Dates: 8:00pm, Fri 29th and Saturday 30th NovemberWhere: East Sydney Community and Arts CentreRunning time: Approx. 60 mins, no intervalAccessibility: Auslan Interpreter / Live Captioning / Wheel Chair AccessibleProduction Team:Written & Performed by Sam MartinDirector: Dan GrahamProducer: Andrew LeeProduction Design: Patrick HowardStage Manager: Pearl JunorPublicity: Robbi James
