by Simon Stephens | Directed by Mika Laulainen

From the excitement of the announcement of the 2012 London Olympic Games to the fear and confusion following the bombings of July 7, 2005, Pornography follows the private lives of eight people as they move inevitably towards a suicide bombing on the subway. The stories reveal complex lives in a society focused on objectification and fear.

REVIEWS

“[A] spare, stylish production”

“Ambitious and provocative”

“…a testament to the success of the Mika Laulainen’s direction. This show makes you think.”

“This show is a must see for any Fringe journeys out to the Cultch for the solid quality of its acting and the unique script. I really hope this wins a Fringe award. It certainly deserves a medal for intrigue.”
