Forget coming out stories. Showcasing six bite-sized delights from Auckland’s hottest new writing talent, Legacy Project 5 is a celebration of the wonderful, wilful and downright weird tales from our local queer community. 

These are tales of love and connection, of empathy and rejection, of dating apps and STIs that each reveal a small part of Auckland’s queer communities. Legacy Project is back for its fifth year running and this year’s scripts are fresher, bolder, and more brazen than ever.

Each year Legacy Project holds open call submissions and carefully curates six scripts to create a collection of unique yet strangely relatable tales from all corners of the queer community. The selected writers are paired with passionate directors and script advisors, elevating their stories to the Q Theatre Loft stage. In Legacy Project 5 we tell our own stories, our way.

A true example of burgeoning artistic talent across the board, Legacy Project is a promise that New Zealand theatre is rapidly changing to reflect the imagination of its diverse communities. - Theatreview
