Dropping The F Bomb!

Declan Greene, one half of Sisters Grimm, throws down the theatrical gauntlet once again… with faggots and gravy!


ARGUABLY THE hardest form of theatre to write well is comedy, and of all the options available – satire, sketch, alt, black – farce seems to offer the least opportunities to also make pointed or poignant social commentary.

With its larger-than-life characterisations, slapstick, implausible plot twists and physical humour, the genre has been unfashionable in recent years. Its roots, however, go back to Greece and the earliest theatre. It evolved into the Italian Commedia dell’arte, was refined by the French and made common by Shakespeare. It influences Wilde’s The Importance Of Being Earnest and reaches its modern zenith in Noises Off. In television it’s the stuff of I Love Lucy and Fawlty Towers. In film, it’s the fallback position for Hollywood and Bollywood comedies.

About DNA Magazine

It’s time to take your pants off… because this month's DNA is all about underwear. The issue is jam-packed with the latest trends in underwear styles with an in-depth guide by our fashion guru Joshua Heath. For the more adventurous and confident, fashion model Gabriel Garcia shows off the unique style of men’s lace underwear that's on trend. This issue, we also pay tribute to George Michael – the man, the music, the icon. In this special feature, Marc Andrews reflects on George's career highlights and some of his personal lows. Steve Pafford recalls his up-close-and-personal encounters with George, and we unearth a great anecdote from Aussie music’s Paul Mac – something to do with “fluffing”! Openly gay UFC fighter, Timothy Guest joins us to talk about overcoming ADHD and depression and how he went from go-go boy and jail bird to ultimate fighting champion. On the cover, Abel Cruz from Photo Studio Miami captures the body-licious Jason Whidby in rocket-fuelled shoot that will leave you begging for more! For art lovers, we showcase the work of the world famous Ross Watson ahead of his up-coming Sydney exhibition and take a look at a unique Bollywood adaptation of the classic fairytale Cinderella – with an all-male cast. All that, and so much more in this month’s DNA Magazine.
