“I wonder what I have to do for people to recognise me as a threat. Do I have to smash a glass over the head of every single man I come into contact with, just so I leave a mark?”

Irina takes erotic photos of average looking men. Always behind the lens, she watches, she moulds, and she stalks. These boys are putty in her hands, just the way she likes it.

When the opportunity to show her photographs in a fashionable London gallery – “darling, you just don’t get chances like this in the North” – coincides with a new boy to obsess over, cracks begin to appear. How far can she push her new prey for the perfect shot, or has she already gone too far?

Based on the critically acclaimed debut novel by Eliza Clark (Finalist in Women’s Prize for Fiction) and adapted by Gillian Greer (Meat, Theatre503; Petals, Theatre Upstairs), Boy Parts is a pitch-black psychological thriller that subverts the erotic gaze and asks what happens when our need for connection gets twisted.

Directed by Sara Joyce (Dust by Milly Thomas; Fringe First winning The Last Return) and produced by Broadway World “Best New Production” award-winning Metal Rabbit Productions (Radiant Vermin & Cuckoo, Soho Theatre) and Soho Theatre.

Performance captioned by Alex Romeo: Fri 17 Nov, 7.30pm
