Izzy Parriss Productions and Three Sisters Productions in Association with the Arcola Theatre present the World Premiere of

After Sex

By Siofra Dromgoole

Directed by Izzy Parriss

They’re on the same page. It’s just sex. It doesn’t have to be complicated.

Anyway, it wouldn’t work. He hates kissing in the morning. She killed her guinea pigs. He doesn’t speak to his dad.

They’re totally different people.

It’s just sex.

“I’m just worried because I think what I’m being turned on by is the fact that you’re imagining a stable future with me, whereas what you’re being turned on by is the potential potency of your own sperm.”

A lyrical, charged, sharply observed and genuinely erotic two-hander, After Sex follows the trajectory of a couple, told almost entirely through post-coital scenes. It’s about how the sex we have can change us: a love-song to connection, and to people’s capacity for changing each other’s lives.

Praise for Izzy and Siofra’s work:

★★★★ “What makes Baby, What Blessings work so well is the soft touch given to its sensitive subject matter by writer, Siofra Dromgoole”Baby, What Blessings / EverythingTheatre

★★★★★ “This debut play from Three Sisters is a titanic overhaul of depictions of young adult women in secondary school & it should be seen as genre-changing…. Dromgoole’s script is a work of tightly-wound delight and heartbreak.”Walk Swiftly and With Purpose / BroadwayBaby

★★★★★ “Theatre is alchemy…to spin gold, you need something indefinable. The reviewer can't quite explain what that is and I doubt theatremakers can either. But when it's there, you see it - and it's there in Ikaria.”Ikaria / Broadway World

★★★★★ “To write that Dear Little Loz is an exploration of one woman’s search for love is to risk diminishing its scope, power and understanding of the human condition”Dear Little Loz / Broadway Baby
