Penetrator archiveThree lads and two teddies unexpectedly find themselves at the crossroads of sexual identity. Coined as Neilson's first offering to the 'in yer face' theatre movement of the 1990s, Penetrator still remains as disturbingly watchable and as socially relevant as it was on its 1994 London debut at the Royal Court. This electrically charged production walks you right along the knife edge as it unfurls the exuberance and follies of a generation brought up on fast food, manufactured pop-music and high-speed-broadband. Max and Alan are living out a typical night in their shabby basement flat when long term school pal Tadge, having been away in the army, arrives out of the blue with some news. Fiercely dark and savagely humorous, Neilson's rarely performed classic makes its long awaited London return. What is it like to live in a world of repression, pornography, betrayal . . . and Nerf guns?


Alexander Pardey (Max), Jolyon Price (Alan), Tom Manning (Tadge)
