Is This About Sex? Show Image
When Daniel walks up to shop assistant Cathy and tells her he wants to buy a bra – for himself - it’s their first step in a passionate affair. Meanwhile, their respective partners, Kay and Paul, are having sex together during lunch. But if everyone is getting what they want, why is no-one happy? Kay’s friend Angela thinks she has all the answers – but does she?
This is a dark and delightful exploration of gender, sexuality and identity. Is This About Sex? is a modern relationship comedy about the serious matter of sex, and what it means to be a man or a woman, in a world that’s just not as simple as it used to be...
This is O’Reilly’s first major play since the enormous success of the Druid production of The Good Father in 2002.
“A new Rough Magic production is always awaited with salivatory expectation” The Irish Times
