F*cking Men Transfers to the Vaults in Waterloo
Joe DiPietro transfers to Waterloo
The King's Head Theatre production of F*cking Men by Joe DiPietro will transfer to the Vaults in Waterloo for a new five week season from 2 November to 4 December 2016 with an official opening on 4 November 2016.
Directed by Mark Barford it will be performed by Richard De Lisle, Harper James and Haydn Whiteside.
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s classic play La Ronde, DiPietro has transplanted the interweaving tales of sexual power, discovery and exploration to a contemporary urban gay subculture.
"A slick dramatic comedy of gay sexual manners, 10 characters crisscross in a series of erotic encounters, exploring whether gay men are increasingly trapped by monogamy, or whether their sexual encounters are fuelled by hunger for elusive, meaningful connections. The play addresses coming out, homophobia, HIV, and keeping the closet door firmly closed. DiPietro’s dialogue is as challenging and provocative as it is seductive."
This new version includes just three actors who play multiple characters as one encounter flips to the next. Characters include the escort, the soldier, the graduate student, the playwright, the Hollywood star, the college kid, the journalist, the married couple, and the porn star, their faults and strengths, and be absorbed by what they learn about themselves and others through the sex they have.
Tickets for the transfer are now on sale.
