"The world needs more queer joy, and Fags in Space sets out to deliver with a happy ending that seems written in the stars.”
- Beer Tent Reviews
"So very cute and adorable. Was happy to get ALL the nerd jokes, even the Doctor Who ones! This was a nice gentle and humorous rom-com about two young men who are destined to be together." - Finster Finds
“Fags in space is essential viewing at this year’s festival.”
- Info Edmonton
“Rom-coms are built on friction, obstacles to overcome, apparent incompatibilities, setbacks and separations, doubts, improbabilities that are actually romantic inevitabilities to everyone (except the participants). Salmon, a skilled writer of natural, funny romantic dialogue, moulds the form artfully. And Owen Holloway’s production is lit with the romantic chemistry between the actors; Salmon’s characters are amusing and amused with each other, a little wary, very aware of the odds stacked in this world against gay love stories with happy endings. We want them to succeed.”
- Liz Nichols
