First generation northern Irish playwright and actor, Fintan Shevlin says:
"BOMB SEX examines the past and ongoing relationship between England and Northern Ireland, especially relevant in the light of the current Brexit border debate and the social struggle for same sex marriage and abortion rights.
As a child of the troubles, I was raised as a Roman Catholic in a close knit-community of conflicting religions and wanted to explore how the Irish see sex and the church's influence of what was and is socially acceptable.
BOMB SEX depicts the personal battles people are fighting, as well as the dangers they face externally."
One man. Eight voices.
It's the 1980s, 'the Troubles' in Northern Ireland are at their height.
But life goes on and some people just want to get some ...!
Weeman Theatre presents BOMB SEX, an explosive dark comedy examining the relationship between Ireland and England during 'the Troubles' told through those trapped in their own situations.
"Bang bang and it's all over!" ... "Ain't Thatcher beautiful?" ... ''Some women love a man in uniform...even if he is a terrorist''... "When sleeping with a soldier, it's not the clap you need to be worried about, it's the tarring and feathering" ..." But always make sure you come home and make love to your husband after the bingo".
BOMB SEX is an eclectic mix of English and Irish characters who cross the Protestant and Catholic divide, delving into the conflict and its political impact in the 1980s.
Intertwining dynamic story-telling with comedy and pathos, the play examines the fight for identity at a time when it was dangerous to be who you wanted to be.
Fresh from a sold out run at Brighton Fringe 2018, this hilarious and yet tragic piece of writing is penned and performed by Fintan Shevlin.
