Fin Taylor: When Harassy Met Sally (The Pleasance in association with PBJ Management)

By | Published on Sunday 26 August 2018

Oh yes, he’s the great offender. It would be understating it somewhat to say that this show about consent won’t be for everyone. Following an incident, he is now compelled to state at the start that “this is a performance, not a conversation”. He has never been one to shy away from controversy, and this show once again finds him handling hot potatoes. Troublingly, at times Taylor appears to be justifying the bad behaviour in society, appealing to people in the audience to support him in saying the unsayable, but delivering his more outrageous routines whilst seated doesn’t make them any more palatable. He clearly gets a kick out of challenging people’s views and being playfully provocative. Unsurprisingly, there are walk outs.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug.
