My Father the Tantric Masseur

Presented by Roann McCloskey

The Sexploration of a Queer Woman

Her father, the conservative Englishman has recently become a Tantric Masseur and Roann gets to hear all about him lubing up labia. Roann's Muslim mother thinks oral sex and porn are tools of the devil, and Roann has been masturbating profusely since the age of 7. All of this makes for an incredibly anxious British Algerian Queer woman.

Join Roann (★★★★ The Stage) as she explores the vulnerability and taboos of sex in her debut solo show, bound to make you laugh uncomfortably!

Roann McCloskey is an actor, director and writer specialising in immersive, improvised and musical theatre. Her comedy, storytelling and performance quality is rooted in bringing to life the everyday, surfacing the hilarity of the banal, and draws heavily on her personal experience and her close familial relationships. She is also currently directing Greyscale at this year’s VAULT Festival (as heard on BBC Radio One).

About the company

Roann McCloskey

Roann is an Actor, Director and Writer specialising in immersive, improvised and musical theatre. Her comedy, story telling and performance quality is rooted in bringing to life the everyday, surfacing the hilarity of the banal, and draws heavily on her personal experience and her close familial relationships. But Roann is open to accessing less deep emotion through the craft of political satire, with NewsRevue in which she performed in 2017 and directed in 2018. Her roles as a Bear, Duck and Tori Spelling in Bayside The Musical along with playing the “flawless” Heda Gabler in 2016 demonstrate Roann’s versatility as a performer. She is currently finishing a sitcom that - as with all good comedies - centres on her mother.
