Sex Rated G (Ines Wurth Presents)

Sex Rated G

In this comedy show, which looks at the ways we talk about sex, Lisa Verlo wants to get us all expressing ourselves more openly. It’s an all-singing, all-dancing presentation, covering everything from repressed childhoods right up to ‘the talk’ with your own children. Educational at times and funny at others, this show uses quotes, Barbie dolls and anecdotes to explore sex, though it’s a shame that the facts and figures are all based on American surveys. Verlo also shares her own sexual exploits, in a bid to lead the way for free speech. Slow in places, the musical outbursts don’t always feel like they are naturally integrated with the sketches and presentation, giving the show a fragmented feel.

Gilded Balloon, until 30 Aug.
