Dickless (Fundamental Theatre Project / Salt ‘n’ Sauce Promotions)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Taking place over one night in Dunningham, ‘Dickless’ by Aisha Josiah captures life in this small English town from the perspective of two different characters, both played by one person, with actors Tessa Jane Fairey and Lauren Downie performing on alternate dates. It’s an entertaining production which takes a look at gender and the stereotypes and expectations that we put on ourselves as well as the ones that are put on us. The show only really skims the surface of its subject matter, but given its verging-on-absurd twists and turns – from sexual conquests to planned out revenge, with a couple of decapitations thrown in for good measure – this is an hour and ten minutes you won’t forget in a hurry.

New Town Theatre, until 27 Aug.
