In a fractured and divided city, two men meet to recreate the killings of a famous gay serial killer – for their own pleasure…and the right price.
Sex/Crime, written for The Glory, a Queer and alternative East End nightlife spot and performance mecca, and funded by Arts Council England, is a challenging new play that explores sex, violence, language, fear and queerness.
Sex/Crime stars celebrated performance artist Jonny Woo and acclaimed playwright Alexis Gregory (SLAP and SAFE) who also wrote it.
Jonny Woo is one of London’s most celebrated alternative cabaret artists. Having cut his teeth back in the early 2000’s in New York, he returned home to fashion himself a scene in East London upon which to develop his inimitable performance style. Anarchic and unpredictable. Confrontational and unapologetic.
Alexis Gregory is a London-based playwright, performer, producer and theatremaker. His plays include his debut; the immersive Slap (Theatre Royal Stratford East / Channel 4 London HQ ‘pop-up’ performance – the channel’s first ever onsite theatrical presentation / ‘Concrete’ in Shoreditch for The Telegraph’s Pride celebrations), with Alexis acting in the piece.
Sex/Crime, directed by Robert Chevara, will play at The Glory, 281 Kingsland Road, London E2 8AS, from Monday April 9 – Saturday 28 April.
