Award-winning theatre maker Rachel Mars visits Soho Theatre for the first time with a gloriously rude new show that unearths the hot-as-hell letters that make sexts blush.

Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And loads of them were proper filthy. With the help of the internet, friends and two sexologists, Rachel has unearthed missives dating back centuries.

Triangulating these sex and love letters of long dead artists with contemporary sexts and a meditation on the construction of the queer female body, the show is a tender and surprising hour that asks – how do we write ourselves and for whom?

Come and take pleasure in James Joyce’s passion for arse, find out who sneaked her gay lover into the White House, hear from Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mozart and bear witness to the best/worst sexts ever sent.

‘In her hands, intimate human connection seems such a wondrous thing.’
★★★★ Fest

This delightfully intimate, very funny and surprisingly moving show is an erotic archive shot through with Rachel’s personal ventures in contemporary Queer kink.


Originally developed at The Yard Theatre.
