F*cking Men at The Vaults

SEEN is very pleased to hear that the acclaimed production of F*cking Men is to extend its stay in The Vaults Theatre in Waterloo to January 15, 2017. Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's classic La Ronde, Joe DiPietro (a two-time Tony Award winner for Memphis) transplants the interweaving tales of sexual power, discovery and exploration to a contemporary, urban, gay subculture.

SEEN is very pleased to hear that the acclaimed production of F*cking Men is to extend its stay in The Vaults Theatre in Waterloo to January 15, 2017. Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s classic La Ronde, Joe DiPietro (a two-time Tony Award winner for Memphis) transplants the interweaving tales of sexual power, discovery and exploration to a contemporary, urban, gay subculture.

FUCKING MEN

F*cking Men, directed by Mark Barford, is a slick, dramatic comedy of gay sexual manners. 10 characters criss-cross 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.

Following three smash-hit, sell-out runs in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe, The King’s Head Theatre’s specially approved new version has just three actors – Richard De Lisle, Harper James and Haydn Whiteside – play all the 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.

FUCKING MEN

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

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
