So I think it’s fair to say that most women almost definitely do masturbate. We just wait to discuss it until we’re in an oddly anonymous but public situation like this one.

A funny, frank, and occasionally explicit insight into heterosexual female desire, read out loud by a man.

Each show begins with a male comedian being given a script they have never seen before. They then go onto read said script for the first time live in front of an audience which explores what one woman thinks about when she thinks about sex and men.

Royal Court commission written by an anonymous woman and first seen as a work in progress at Edinburgh 2015.

Solo show with random casting.

Ages 15+

“Comically candid monologue... inverts expectations... The sight-reading element heightens the text’s disruptive force.”

Anna Winter (The Stage)

“The show’s reflections on desire feel fresh... A heartfelt and often richly humorous piece.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Makes her point about male hegemony fairly effortlessly. It is not a hard case to make.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Initially appealing, latterly wearying monologue.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“A gimmick that looks unlikely to hit the g-spot of genuine surprise every time... “Navel-gazing” would be more accurate.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Intriguing... How disappointed I was... Funny and even enlightening moments... I was left a little… bored.”
