Strip Search archiveStrip Search is a solo performance piece for male stripper, written and directed by two-times Fringe First Winner, Peter Scott-Presland. It is performed by Damola Onadeko. SQUADDIE was a rent boy, a soldier in Iraq, an abused child. But he always comes out on top because he knows how to play the system. As he performs his routine in a tacky gay bar, he looks back over his life, and especially his relationship with his best mate, Christian. Against a real-time strip routine he also performs a psychological strip for the audience. Warning: Contains full male nudity and images some may find offensive. 18+ only. Tonight SQUADDIE is stripping - to the bone. Strip Search - a solo performance piece for male stripper, by Peter Scott-Presland. SQUADDIE is stripping tonight, in a B-list gay bar; he is also stripping his soul, to the bone. As he slips back and forth between his real-time strip routine and memories of borstal, of tours in Iraq, and of surviving on the streets post-discharge from the Army, we get a moving and angry picture of a man trying to better himself in a life which gave him no lucky breaks, with ironic contrasts between the real-life soldier and the military fantasy of his entertainment. Fantasy and reality combine in a savage climax. This is a heavily revised version of a script first presented in 2010.
