Previously posted: Following three smash-hit, sell-out runs in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe, The King’s Head Theatre production of F***ing Men is transferring to The Vaults Theatre in Waterloo for a 5-week run – from Wednesday, November 2 to Sunday, December 4, 2016.

Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s classic La Ronde, Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change) transplants the interweaving tales of sexual power, discovery and exploration to a contemporary urban gay subculture.

Described as a slick dramatic comedy of gay sexual manners, ten 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 specially approved new version sees three actors play multiple characters as one encounter flips to the next. Continuously circling in twosomes, meet 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.

F***ing Men is a fearless dissection and audacious celebration of sexuality that will fascinate audiences of every persuasion.

Presented by James Seabright, F***ing Men is directed by Mark Barford and performed by Richard De Lisle, Harper James and Haydn Whiteside.
