We inherit our sex lives: from movies and books, from past lovers, from porn. And we learn: sex is mostly heterosexual. Women are desired. Men do the desiring and sex is over when he comes.

Shattering these ideas, Body Double blends memoir, erotic fiction, scientific research and the language of Hollywood to expose the invisible rules that shape our relationships. Through nine electric vignettes, dating and dancing and orgasms and desire are exploded and re-examined with playful precision.

Created by acclaimed theatre-makers Eleanor Bishop, Julia Croft and Karin McCracken, Body Double is essential viewing: a fearless new gaze on contemporary romance.

In association with Zanetti Productions
