Hello, we’re Ell and Mary.
We’re ex-girlfriends and bisexuals and we’re a bit bummed out by boys.
Three years ago we interviewed women and transpeople aged 11 to 97 for our five-star sell-out show Hotter. We didn’t interview men. We just didn’t want to. Because men are trash, right?
Wrong. Well, sometimes wrong. We asked trans-men, cis-men, and masculine presenting people aged 8 to 82 about what makes them hard. This is a show about what we learned: about strength, fitting in, feeling yourself, and arseholes.
Through singing, dancing, and f*cking around in crap drag, Ell and Mary write a love letter to masculinity which they are forever tearing up and taping back together again.
Age Recommendation: 16+
Content Warning: contains references to sexual assault
A beautifully constructed piece of theatre
An entertaining look at how men see themselves and how the rest of the world sees them
Mature and melancholy follow-up to Hotter that uses verbatim techniques to explores masculinity
They’re talented, they’re funny, they write beautifully
Ell Potter and Mary Higgins radically push on from previous show Hotter, in this fantastic, sexy, athletic examination of male identity
Despite it being high energy and camp, we need more substance
