Award-winning theatre maker Rachel Mars returns to Lancaster Arts with a gloriously intimate, funny and shocking new solo show.
Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And many were filthy. With the help of the internet, friends and two sexologists, Rachel has unearthed missives dating back centuries. The show is a tender and surprising hour that asks – how do we write about ourselves and for whom?
Including letters by Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mozart and James Joyce, as well as sexts sent in by anonymous donation.
What at first seemed to be a comedy show poking fun at the differences in historical and modern sexting, instead becomes a historical insight into sex and the queer narratives that are so easily lost within history.
