Revealing the dirtiest secrets of real people in their own words, Lizzie Roper delves into the nation’s views on sex. This unique solo show returns to Edinburgh for just eight performances following an award-nominated, critically acclaimed festival run last year, which was followed by a West End transfer and a UK tour.

To create the show, Lizzie interviewed people with very different sex lives, including an online sex addict, a non-orgasmic woman, a dominatrix and a Jungian analyst in her seventies.

The recorded footage was edited down to create an hour that weaves the most interesting accounts together into an insightful, poignant and surprisingly funny take on Britain’s sex life. This is played back through earphones, and Lizzie repeats the interviewee’s comments word-for-word, replicating their vocal patterns to create a compelling, live experience for the audience.

'Like Creature Comforts, only with less plasticine and more sex.' Alan Davies

‘A lightning-fast piece of comic ventriloquism. It's a hard thing to pull off both pathos and belly laughs, but Roper more than succeeds.’ The Times

‘Enjoying a stream of hysterical and sometimes downright smutty dialogue, the audience also gets Roper's signature rubbery facial contortions, and her excellent ear for accents into the bargain.’ ***** Edinburgh Evening News
