Over My Dead Body: UNINVITED

A flat-warming party on the eve of World AIDS Day. When 3 uninvited guests turn up, the party takes a turn for the worst. But as these strangers drag the skeletons out of the closet, the flatmates discover they are more intricately connected with the past than they ever imagined.

The entire UNINVITED cast, crew and creative team are proud members of the LGBTQi+ community, as we at Tuatara Collective believe it is important that we tell our own stories.

Inspired by the NZ Memorial AIDS Quilt Project, our people who lost their battle with HIV/AIDS are acknowledged and remembered. This story is a reminder for those who were around in the 80's, and a lesson for those who weren't, to educate and inform local Rainbow communities about their own history and culture, encouraging a deeper understanding of diversity, respect for difference, connectivity and intersectional support.

 

Please note: The performance content contains themes of violence, death/dying, racism, transphobia and homophobia.
