Gay Gore: Sex/Crime @sohotheatre
Written and performed by Alexis Gregory, he’s visiting a man with a specialism, who goes by the name of A (Jonny Woo). He provides a service of reenacting the works of famous gay serial killers for the right fee. Just the thing for a man who is bored with his life and searching for the next extra special thrill. With the promise of experiencing what it was like to be a victim of one of these killers. Or as close as far as health and safety regulations allow.
Apart from messing with your mind, the comic moments shock and awe you with their speed and relentlessness. The comedy serves to focus on the contradictions of modern gay life. Gay men are now free to do whatever they want. But they’re still bound in chains, gagged, drugged, or just little fucked up.
Directed by Robert Chevara, Sex/Crime is at the Soho Theatre until 1 February.
