i just like you | a gay myth

Written by Zachary Wilcox

Pat needs a husband. They’re 30, single and depressed — floating through Grindr hook-ups with a year left on their visa and searching for something a bit… deeper.

Leo’s a mess. He’s abandoned a seven year relationship to shag his way through all the gays in London and has developed an allergy to intimacy along the way.

And they can’t keep their hands off each other. What could possibly go wrong?

I just like you | a gay myth is an intimate, steamy two hander about the tops, bottoms, and sides of gay dating. Following a sold-out Edinburgh run, this will mark Wilcox’s London debut. I just like you | a gay myth has been long-listed for Theatre503’s 2023 International Playwriting Award and Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2023 37 Plays Award.

Who What Where Productions is a non-profit multi-disciplinary, trans-Atlantic production company and cohort of artists dedicated to producing new works in unusual spaces. In addition to the 2022 Edinburgh run of ‘I just like you | a gay myth’, recent productions include: ‘Spills’ by Ruthie Rado, a site-specific, immersive, and interactive play about a millennials exploring their sexuality (London 2023, New York City 2022, & D.C. 2019); ‘Spark’ by Ruthie Rado, a site-specific play set in a sex club (New York City 2023).
