“We’re dicks, we’re idiots, we’re guys. We don’t dive deep.”

Long-time Massive company members Dominic Ona-Ariki (The Brave, One Lane Bridge, Double Parked), Neil Amituanai (The Brave, Three Wise Cousins) and Beulah Koale (The Brave, Hawaii Five-O, Next Goal Wins) met while creating and performing with Massive over 15 years ago.  They have been best mates ever since.

 

But what happens when their friendship fractures and they need to work out how to put it back together? When ignoring it stops working, Neil, Beulah and Dom have to work out how to fix their friendship or walk away.

 

Gaming online together and having drinks at the pub isn’t the same as turning up for each other. They have to excavate what being brothers really means, including facing some hard truths about their own insecurities.

 

Three of New Zealand’s best actors bring their real lives to the stage, returning to Massive Theatre Company where they first met as teenagers, to explore the va of their friendship.

Full of trademark Massive cheek, humour, grit and a whole lot of heart, I LOVE YOU G is a gutsy and at times uncomfortable love letter to brotherhood – a joyous invitation to “soften the f**k up.”

 

Co-directed by Samantha Scott MNZM (Massive Artistic Director) and Scotty Cotter (The Brave, Mauri Tau, Shortland Street).
