'Sex/Crime' is a dark comic queer thriller where two men - 'A' and 'B' - meet to recreate the killings of a famous gay serial killer; for their own pleasure … and the right price.
The show is an exciting, challenging play exploring sex, violence, language, fear, intimacy, division, power and queerness.
Following a sell-out run at alternative East End queer venue, The Glory, in 2018, 'Sex/Crime' will transfer to Soho Theatre Upstairs from 21 January to 1 February 2020.
'Sex/Crime' is written by playwright and performer Alexis Gregory whose recent self- performed slow show 'Riot Act' played to great acclaim in the West End, Arcola Theatre and on a UK tour (ActDrop's Peter Brown reviewed Riot Act in August 2018 - read his full **** review here).
It heads out on another UK tour in February 2020.
Mr Gregory acts in the piece opposite celebrated alternative drag legend Jonny Woo in a rare acting role.
Olivier Award winning lighting designer Mike Robertson returns to light the production which is directed by multi award-winning theatre and opera director Robert Chevara who commented ...
"'Sex/Crime' is a mixture of treacle-black humour, insanity and life at the edge of delirium.
It's also a powerful statement on how we all live today and the isolation which pushes us to the extremes of experience.
It's an atomic bomb of theatrical power, daring and the pursuit of desire and fulfilment at any cost.
Hilarious. Dangerous. Tragic."
"Everything else is tumbling down Falling apart
But not you and me
You and me are going to hold tight
You and me are just right".
What's happening in the capital - behind the darkest of closed doors?
You're about to find out!
As two men meet, in a fractured and divided city, and come together to recreate the killings of a famous gay serial killer - for their own pleasure … and the right price.
But what they don't know about each other, and what they don't know about themselves, might change their lives forever …
Following its sell-out run at alternative East End queer venue The Glory, Sex/Crime comes to Soho Theatre.
An exciting, challenging play that explores sex, violence, language, fear and queerness.
