Fitter

Fitter

A rugby ball’s soft, a hockey stick’s hard, what does that make me?’ - Boy, 12

Overview

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

Critic reviews

A beautifully constructed piece of theatre

Theatre Weekly

An entertaining look at how men see themselves and how the rest of the world sees them

WhatsOnStage

Mature and melancholy follow-up to Hotter that uses verbatim techniques to explores masculinity

The Stage

They’re talented, they’re funny, they write beautifully

Exeunt

Ell Potter and Mary Higgins radically push on from previous show Hotter, in this fantastic, sexy, athletic examination of male identity

The Guardian

Despite it being high energy and camp, we need more substance
