Adult Without Being Lewd
Sex Toys - The Full Length Version is the continuation of the lives of Jillian, Carol and Cameron with all the intricacies and much, much more of the previous multi-award winning one-act play Sex Toys and introducing more diverse characters – very diverse.
This could be non-fiction: plenty of partnership doubts, mistrust, love, anger, forgiveness, diversity and sex all put into an exhilarating play delivered with great humour and insight.
Carol is increasingly angry with Bobby when he gives her yet another "special gift"; Jillian is her usual "out-there and live life to the full" woman; Cameron remains the supposed confident man-about-town but occasionally shows his vulnerable side.
It's all about the marrow
Trisha is a mere apprentice compared to Jill but is willing to learn; and Madame Triple X has done it all, and more and she's accompanied by Mr. Killjoy. Add to this motley crew a bunch of Cam's friends and a good time is had by all.
Local playwright, Carl Aspden Pomfret, has captured faithfully the mood of the one-act staged four years ago. It is a fast paced journey into the lives of a group of friends and cleverly illustrates the ambiguity which everyday life presents to us all.
Director, Sallie Ketteringham, who directed Sex Toys as a one-act, is delighted to bring to the stage the "full length version"!
Sex Toys - The Full Length Version, is for adults but the content is neither lewd nor gratuitous and the production promises to give an audience a pleasurable night out.
The play runs from the 19th of April to the 11th of May at Marloo Theatre, Marloo Road, Greenmount in the Perth Hills. Bookings may be made by ringing Gwyne on 9255 1783.
