“She takes her top off.
Her breasts –
Her beautiful breasts in front of me,
One slightly bigger than the other,
I burst out crying.”
Loosely based on real events, Bad Sex follows a young man trying to piece his life together in between fielding calls from his agent and leaving a string of one-night stands in his wake. With no family in sight to keep him grounded, he navigates the promising acting career he may have ruined, the coke habit he can’t afford, and the chaotic sex life he no longer enjoys.
In Bad Sex Liam, a young American actor, is deep into a long West End run when, exacerbated by drugs, sex and alcohol, past trauma and unchecked male privilege catch up with him and he walks off-stage mid-show.
This is a play about grief, the mental health consequences of not talking about it, especially in a high-pressure working environment, and being raised in a culture where seeking help is actively discouraged.
