MANWATCHING

Ended 20 May 2017 after 10 days

This is a rare voice - despite the male body delivering it - that deserves to be heard.

The controversial work comes to its birthplace

Transferring to the Royal Court Theatre for the first time since its premiere in 2015, this daring production explores female heterosexuality in both comic and sometimes explicit detail. Written by an anonymous female playwright, the show begins with a male comedian being handed a script they have never seen before, let alone rehearsed. Reading it out loud in front of a live audience, no blushes are spared as he shares insight into what one woman thinks about when she thinks about sex and men. Other than that, we cannot give out any more clues, as the playwright wants to remain anonymous!

First piloted at the Edinburgh Festival in 2015, previous performers include Tim Key, Mike Wozniak and Nathaniel Martello-White, however casting has yet to be announced as to keep the suspense! A rare insight into female sexuality, this explosive one-man show will be extracting gasps, giggles and plenty of red faces!
