MANWATCHING (Edinburgh Festival)

MANWATCHING (Edinburgh Festival) Top / Details / The Company
Sun 18 Jun - Sun 27 Aug 2017

So I think it’s fair to say that most women almost definitely do masturbate. We just wait to discuss it until we’re in an oddly anonymous but public situation like this one.

A funny and frank insight into heterosexual female desire, read out loud by a man. The show begins with a male comedian being given a script they have never seen before. They read the script out loud, sight unseen, in front of an audience. This is a show about what one woman thinks about when she thinks about sex with men.

"Frank, funny and often explicit."

Alice Jones | Independent
