Clickbait at the Theatre503 Pub Theatre
A new play by Milly Thomas, Clickbait will run at the Theatre503 pub theatre venue in Battersea, south London, from 19 January to 13 February 2016.
Described as a "darkly comic new play about society’s attitude to porn and the women who make it for themselves", it is produced by Fools & Kings, DEM Productions and Theatre503 and is directed by Holly Race Roughan with design by Frankie Bradshaw.
"The play follows Nicola who, threatened with the release of an amateur sex video, makes a snap decision to post it online herself. What began as a drunken night in a dirty club ends with a unique business opportunity for Nicola and her two sisters as they start a network of amateur porn video 'booths'. But where there is demand there must be supply and, as lines become blurred, public opinion begins to turn against the trio."
Writer Milly Thomas commented:
"I was fascinated by the disconnect between the world of porn – a world where women don't say 'no' – and the real world, where women who are enjoying sex or sexual empowerment are often viewed as threatening, or unfeminine. On the flip side, we also wanted to show how women themselves can blur the line between empowerment and exploitation in the sex industry."
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
