After 3 smash-hit, sell-out runs in London and Edinburgh, PROVOCATIVE critically acclaimed F*cking Men to transfer to The Vaults for 5 weeks from 2nd November, 2016. James Seabright presents the King’s Head Theatre production of F*cking Men by Joe DiePietro. Directed by Mark Barford. Performed by Richard De Lisle, Harper James and Haydn Whiteside.
Following three smash-hit, sell-out runs in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe, The King’s Head Theatre production of F*cking Men is to transfer to The Vaults Theatre in Waterloo for a 5-week run from Wednesday 2 November – Sunday 4 December. Press night is Friday 4 November 2016 at 7.30pm
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s classic La Ronde, Joe DiPietro (“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”) transplants the interweaving tales of sexual power, discovery and exploration to a contemporary urban gay subculture.
A slick dramatic comedy of gay sexual manners, 10 characters crisscross in a series of erotic encounters, exploring whether gay men are increasingly trapped by monogamy, or whether their sexual encounters are fuelled by hunger for elusive, meaningful connections. The play addresses coming out, homophobia, HIV, and keeping the closet door firmly closed. DiPietro’s dialogue is as challenging and provocative as it is seductive.
This specially approved new version sees three actors play multiple characters as one encounter flips to the next. Continuously circling in twosomes, meet the escort, the soldier, the graduate student, the playwright, the Hollywood star, the college kid, the journalist, the married couple, and the porn star, their faults and strengths, and be absorbed by what they learn about themselves and others through the sex they have.
F*cking Men is a fearless dissection and audacious celebration of sexuality that will fascinate audiences of every persuasion.
