Presented by Awkward Productions
“Unashamedly provocative and unquestionably memorable” – The Stage
After sell out shows at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a five star run at the King’s Head Theatre in London Awkward Conversations With Animals I’ve F*cked is going on tour this autumn.
Awkward Productions present this critically-acclaimed, darkly comic production about love, acceptance and boundaries.
One-night stands are awkward. One-night stands with animals are more awkward. And when you’re as desperate to please as Bobby, things get awkward as fuck. He’s just a guy with too much love to give, and a burning desire to give it to consensual adult mammals. Reuniting the creative team from the previous runs – Linus Karp returns to the role directed by Katharine Armitage.
A one-man tragi-comedy, Rob Hayes’ play is a disturbing psychological examination of loneliness. The production tackles mental health, focusing on how toxic masculinity can undermine loving and healthy social connections, while also illustrating the absurdity of society’s treatment of animals. While castrating, killing and eating animals is part of our everyday lives and docking tails, breeding and caging animals is acceptable, there is a definitive ethical line drawn at sex.
