My Pet, My Love 2016 – NZ Fringe

My Pet, My Love

2016 New Zealand Fringe Festival

A one-man show about fish, forgetting and the fear of dying single.

Rob is gay
Rob has a pet fish
Rob’s Nonna died
Rob is scared
Rob is losing his memory
Rob wrote a play about it

My Pet, My Love weaves together three stories about loss, love and the fears we face. An innocent child discovers death for the first time; an elderly gay couple struggle with the onset of dementia; and a 32 year old actor reveals his fears from the trivial to the profound.

“Gaetano has a natural command of the stage, and morphs between the characters confidently… he delivers sensitive and poignant moments of love, loss, memory and death.” –★★★★ Time Out Melbourne

“Gaetano’s acting here is provocative and in parts stunning.” – Planet Arts Melbourne
