Following a critically acclaimed, sell-out run at alternative East End queer venue The Glory, ‘Sex/Crime’ is to transfer to Soho Theatre.
This exciting, challenging, controversial play written by and starring Alexis Gregory, co-starring with Johnny Woo, explores sex, violence, language, fear and queerness, and is a dark comic queer thriller, a controversial and shocking statement on the state of today, both a hard-hitting ‘in ya face’ drama and an outrageous comedy.
In a fractured and divided city, two men; ‘A’ and ‘B’, meet to recreate the killings of a famous gay serial killer; for their own pleasure…and the right price.
“Everything else is tumbling down
But not you and me
You and me are going to hold tight
You and me are just right”
‘Sex/Crime’ is written by playwright and performer Alexis Gregory whose recent self- performed slow show ‘Riot Act’ played to great acclaim in the West End, Arcola Theatre and on a UK tour. It heads out on another UK tour in February 2020. Gregory acts in the piece opposite celebrated alternative drag legend Jonny Woo in a rare acting role
