The Education of a Lap Dancer



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

JOHN Cooper's latest play, The Education of a Lap Dancer runs from Tuesday, October 18 to Sunday, November 13, 2005, at London's Pleasance Theatre.

Cooper's play cuts through the political spin and looks at the increasingly complex cultural mix that is London today, in the process, daring to ask: if you're an attractive young girl from Romania, which will get you further - a GCSE or a G-string?

 

 

 

 

Chris, a stressed-out teacher spends his evenings in a Lap Dance club where he meets the beautiful Ylenia, a Romanian exotic dancer providing special services for those who can afford it.

His wife Marie, an exhausted NHS doctor, finds herself charmed by Sorin, an enigmatic East-European attempting to make a fast euro. When Chris' daughter Sophie, college girl and rock chic wannabe, brings home black musician Billy, the cultural melting-pot begins to overheat.

Described as 'fast-moving, street-wise and humorous', The Education of a Lap Dancer examines values and morals in a London undergoing rapid cultural change, where sex as ever, is a powerful and irresistible driving force.

Tickets: £15 (£12 concessions and £10 on Tuesday)
