"Outstanding performances... A soul-bearing and explosive exploration of gender and art."
– Grumpy Gay Critic
Written by POLIS LOIZOU
Starring JAACQ HUGO & LAURA LOUISE BAKER
Lars (Laura Louise Baker) and Jackie (Jaacq Hugo) are a married couple of actors whose star is beginning to fade. When an old friend resurfaces with a bold new film script, Lars and Jackie find themselves in competition with each other to land the sex-unspecified lead role.
The knives are out. Old wounds are picked afresh, as husband and wife are forced to confront uncomfortable truths about their marriage and themselves.
The Sexes was originally performed at the Brighton, Buxton, Outset (Somerset) and Camden Hangover between 2010 and 2012, then reworked in 2015 for the Camden Fringe.
