‘The G.A.A is the Gaelic Athletic Association. G.A.Y. is a club night at the London Astoria. Both are full of sweaty men.’
Anto Broderick is young, cute and wants to be a pop star. But he’s cursed with parents who are ‘sporty … G.A.A. sporty’. Then sport suddenly becomes more than a little interesting when he strikes up an unlikely friendship with his sister’s boyfriend, Khalid Kashani, a football-loving English Muslim. But can a gay guy really be Just Good Friends with his flirty straight mate?
G.A.A.Y is a funny, bittersweet story of thwarted lust. Driven by viciously witty dialogue, Jarlath Gregory’s characters enact a tragicomic drama against the backdrop of modern Dublin in all its grime and glitter.
