The creative forces of Birds of Paradise & Random Accomplice are back by popular demand with the frank and hilarious sex comedy – Wendy Hoose.
The acclaimed smash hit comedy follows the story of Laura and Jake. Who just want sex. Late Friday night drunken sex. Nothing more. No strings attached. But getting your leg over is sometimes more difficult than you think. Containing scenes of a sexual nature, Wendy Hoose is about two twenty year olds searching for love in all the wrong places! Especially when those places involve the fickle and flirty world of dating apps.
Wendy Hoose follows Jake (James Young – The Incredible Adventures of See Thru Sam, Slick, Outlander) on his quest for some late night fun with Laura (Amy Conahan – Skeleton Wumman, Let’s Talk About Sex) via a mobile phone dating app. All is going well thanks to some sexy texting, but things take a slight twist when it comes down to the nitty gritty, and the course of true love, or in this case sex, does not run smoothly.
Robert Softley Gale, Artistic Director, Birds of Paradise said: “When we were developing Wendy Hoose for its first outing, Johnny and I hoped it’d make audiences laugh but – in all honesty – we were bowled over by the sell-out performances and we loved listening to the audiences hysterical laughter night after night. We’re really happy to be bringing it back for those who didn’t catch it first time round or for those who want to see it again.”
Johnny McKnight, Co-artistic Director, Random Accomplice added: “It’s with a sense of delight and joy that we bring Wendy Hoose back out on tour. The real joy is when everything just gels and the chemistry is right. Wendy Hoose is one of those experiences. We never tried to be shocking or new or different. We tried to tell the truth. And I think we did. We wanted to make a comedy about dating today – it’s a nightmare. Trying to negotiate dating and drinking on a Friday night is hard enough – throw a Tindr or Grindr into the mix and there’s potential for a story that you’re going to share for months to come. Wendy Hoose is one possible story.”
All performances include audio description, BSL and animated surtitles.
The tour is being supported by an Unlimited Award which celebrates the work of disabled artists.
