This provocative two-hander examines the nature of heterosexuality in a witty and poetic way, with gripping dialogue and haunting images. The essential elements of all relationships – sexual, emotional and financial – are exposed. Its experimental form involved unscripted dialogue between performers and audience at set points during the play – inviting direct participation and making it an integral part of the theatrical experience.
‘Quite extraordinary… a skilful and very relaxed translation… alert and intelligent performances… to describe the show as thought-provoking would sound like a Victorian understatement.’
Eileen Fairweather Spare Rib Nov 1980
‘The performance shows why Monstrous Regiment have a particularly high reputation amongst feminist theatre groups.’
Joyce McMillan The Scotsman May 1981
