The Misandrist

By Lisa Carroll

Directed by Bethany Pitts

Lisa Carroll (writer of the ‘intoxicating to watch’ Cuckoo) returns with a penetrating new comedy about the quest for true intimacy, sexual equality, and top-notch tupperware.

When “intimidating” Rachel and eternal “nice guy” Nick meet at a sticky-floored bar in Piccadilly, what was meant to be a one-night-stand becomes a sexual odyssey of self-discovery… and mutual destruction.

As they navigate their situationship, Rachel decides it’s time to TAKE BACK CONTROL. Can some playful, passionate pegging provide a pathway of discovery to new parts of themselves, and each other?
