Legacy Project has been sharing our local queer stories with heart on stage since 2014. In 2019, the results of our sixth development cycle will be unveiled in LEGACY SIX.
LEGACY SIX brings together a selection of provoking tales of love and family, of identity and dating, of connection and dance that showcase the up-and-coming voices from within our wonderful queer community.
WHEN: 5TH - 15TH FEB @ 6.30PM
WHERE: Q THEATRE VAULT (Part of 2019 Auckland Pride Festival)
TICKETS: $18 - $20 via www.qtheatre.co.nz/legacy-six
Each year Legacy Project carefully curates and develops six scripts from our open call submissions to create a collection of unique stories that speaks to the personal experiences from all corners of our queer community. In LEGACY SIX we tell our own stories, our way.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT LEGACY PROJECT...
“Drained my emotions, filled me with love.” (2018 audience member)
“F*cking brilliant mix of queer sh*t.” (2018 audience member)
“Legacy Project has topped itself again, with a fine selection of dynamic, rule-breaking stories told with unflinching honesty. This is uniquely queer theatre, told from a uniquely queer perspective.” (George Fenwick, nzherald.co.nz)
“A sense of identity comes from seeing our own culture and place in the world reflected back to us through storytelling, and this is what the Legacy Project has dished up for five years. The stories are experimental, quirky and raw, and they give a voice to a young queer generation.” (Andrew Whiteside, andrewwhiteside.com)
