C*nt (Becky Fury)

By | Published on Friday 13 August 2021

“How do I love thee / let me c*nt the ways”. Thus begins Malcolm Hardee and Morecambe Fringe Award winner Becky Fury’s take on the Browning classic, although one might be hard pressed to count the c*nts in this show too – sprinkled liberally as they are throughout the performance. “Roses are red / Violets are blue / You’re a c*nt” is another such offering. This performance is neither slick nor neatly assembled, but Fury is instantly affable, and her explosively expletive monologue does offer some insightful observations and cheeky word play, as well as a meaty fist of genuine laugh out loud moments. More titillating than scintillating, ‘C*nt’ seduces, slowly but surely.
