"Being human is so boring. And everyone has their fantasies..."
idan loves animal role-play: pretending to be a pony is her biggest thrill. Her boyfriend Bravo is sceptical but supportive. But Aidan seeks more than his acceptance. She wants to come out publicly – whatever the consequences.
Black Beauty in Irons is a kinky romantic drama that confronts whether it’s possible to truly fulfil your fantasies. The first UK show to put the animal role-play identity centre-stage, our work addresses issues with pride, consent and coming out.
Black Beauty in Irons matters because there are people everywhere who can’t be open about their identities: we think that’s unfair, and it’s time for change.
