Ban This Filth! (Alan Bissett and Sacha Kyle)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

I’ve struggled with the rating for this. This idea-fuelled show is a springboard for debate: if you think Alan Bissett makes a good point you’ll love it, if not, you won’t. But to be honest, that’s largely irrelevant. This show, however, is incredibly relevant: to our current social and sexual climates, and the Twitter-battle currently raging. Bissett, in my opinion, has put together an incredible piece, perfectly highlighting the impossibility of making a statement that can’t be argued with, and the confusion and frustration that stems from that. If you have even the most remote interest in gender or sexuality you should see this. Even if you just hate it and disagree with every Bissett says, it’s important.

Scottish Storytelling Centre, until 11 Aug, 9.00pm.
