Your Sexts are S***: Older Better Letters


This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Award-winning theatre maker Rachel Mars returns to Lancaster Arts with a gloriously intimate, funny and shocking new solo show.

Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And many were filthy. With the help of the internet, friends and two sexologists, Rachel has unearthed missives dating back centuries. The show is a tender and surprising hour that asks – how do we write about ourselves and for whom?

Including letters by Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mozart and James Joyce, as well as sexts sent in by anonymous donation.
