After a much needed afternoon nap (I hope!) we’ll be out again this evening for our next show, which is Fandango Productions’ Partial Nudity, at Monkey House @ Zoo, 140 The Pleasance, at 19:55 on Monday 22nd. Here’s the website blurb: “A Bolton pub. One stag do. One hen do. Two strippers forced to share a dressing room. For Darren, a local lad, this will be his first full strip. For Nina, an international student at Manchester, it’s just another stag to pay off her student loans. Over the course of this claustrophobic 50-minute drama, these two strangers descend into a territory that leaves the audience feeling as exposed as they are. A Fringe debut for Anglo-American Fandango Productions, this play explores gender and sexual politics and the inequality that affects us all today.”
Fandango Productions are Kate Franz and Joe Layton, and the play is written by Emily Layton. As soon as I read the basis of this play I thought it sounded really fascinating, and I look forward to hearing what it does have to say about sexual politics, exploitation, equality and that sense of exposure. Done well this should be dynamite. Check back about 9.00 this evening to see how it went and by then the preview blog for our next show should be available to read too.
That’s a perfect little play! Wisdom versus naïveté in a most unlikely setting. Really thought provoking and very funny yet also unsettling. Two excellent performances and an insight into a world most of us will never see. Highly recommended!
