In commodo accumsan vulputate. Integer et lectus ac risus commodo convallis vel ac nulla.


11 October, 9pm


While London is tripping on the heraldry of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, Ek is lying on his side with three doctors staring at his arsehole.

He never should have kissed a Tory.

HERPES is a new play about helplessness, and feeling like nothing is ever going to change. A show about this country’s insidious, stinking, neo-colonial politics which has – for too long – been allowed to masquerade as patriotism.

And it’s about herpes.
