Every night, two brand new actors will try to answer a question: How do you have sex on stage? How do you even have sex? 

Acclaimed makers of innovative theatre Dead Centre, with award-winning writer Emilie Pine, present a sublimely funny love story for a loveless age.

Each show will feature two new performers – some of the best actors in the country – to tell a story of desire, betrayal and loneliness. They have not rehearsed, and have never read the script.

But they are not alone – to help and guide them they’re joined by an Intimacy Director, trained in the art of teaching people how to touch.

So, you can rest assured that the sex will be safe. It will be consensual. And it will be good.
