A play featuring Derry boxer turned actor has been voted one of 5 sexiest events in New York City by TIME OUT magazine.
‘For Love’, an “irreverent romp” through the urban sexual experiences of three Irish women, comes to Derry next month.
“This will be a sensational homecoming for John, and it’s a sensational play for him to do it with!” Áine McCarron at The Playhouse said.
“The play delves into the murky assault course of Dublin’s Tricky Nightlife, as portrayed by Actress and playwright Laoisa Sexton. Laoisa has been described this week by Colin Murphy of The Independent as “Ireland’s answer to Lena Dunham” (creator and star of shameless HBO series, Girls)- it’s no wonder the play made it into a roundup of NYC’s raunchy, racy and risqué affairs!”
“But this play is so much more than just the racy headlines- Laoisa portrays real women who are “flawed, yes, but daring, passionate and provocative as well”, it’s about what it means to be single to three Irish women, what they will put themselves through, and what they will or won’t do--for love.”
Already it’s been making headlines stateside.
The play was picked up for its Broadway run at The Irish Repertory after a sold-out run at New York’s first Irish Theater Festival, where it was chosen as “the pick of the festival” by The Irish Echo.
It was this week chosen alongside raunchy burlesque events and fundraisers by TIME OUT magazine as one of 5 sexiest events in New York City.
Directed by Tim Ruddy, and featuring John Duddy, Jo Kinsella, Georgina McKevitt and Laoisa Sexton, ‘For Love’ will run at The Playhouse from April 8 to 13.
