THERE are no lady parts in The Penis Monologues, a theatre show that delves into the heart of contemporary man’s unmanly revelations.
Brought to you by the Nomadic Academy for Fools, it comes to Liverpool in time for April Fool's Day and follows three sell-out performances in Bristol and Glastonbury, Somerset. Latterly there has been a successful run in London, where size is of the utmost importance.
Exploring male attitudes towards sex, women, violence, emotional insecurities and what it’s like to have a penis, four men bring to life their personally true stories with vulnerability and a foolish edge.
The project’s originator, Paul Scott, says he watched Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues and "was inspired, yet I wanted to take it a step further by creating a piece where each cast member brings their own personal experiences."
He added: "Each monologue is personal and unique, yet the themes are universal. The audience can each find themselves and the depths of their vulnerabilities being played out on stage."
Producer Justine Corrie talks of the impact the show has had on audiences to date. “The show attracts a lot of curious women as well as men. The feedback we’ve received after the shows has been incredible, there’s a sense of relief that these issues are being brought out into the open in such a playful way.”
With each performance the show evolves, it’s never the same show twice. The cast work together in the moment, with set pieces told in a spontaneous and unrehearsed style. This is genuine theatre of the fool.
This is an exciting London debut for The Penis Monologues and talented cast of: Paul Scott, Bruce Knight, Chris Murray, Danny Mullins and Joanne Tremarco with additional support from Jane Scott.
