Based on Arthur Schnitzler’s 19th century play, La Ronde, the new adaptation follows 10 gay men as their lives change through erotic encounters as a way to explore sexual freedom. Schnitzler's plays also include Professor Bernhardi, newly adapted into Robert Icke's The Doctor.

“I couldn’t be more excited to debut this updated version of F★★king Men. Much about our queer lives has evolved and changed since the play’s debut, so to bring contemporary attitudes to this roundelay of sex, love and intimacy has opened up new layers of meaning,” said writer Joe DiPetro.

The cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.
