A rugby ball’s soft, a hockey stick’s hard, what does that make me?’ – Boy, 12
Hello, we’re Ell and Mary.
We’re ex-girlfriends and bisexuals and we’re a bit bummed out by boys.
Three years ago we interviewed women and trans people aged 11 to 97 for our five-star sell-out show HOTTER. We didn’t interview men. We just didn’t want to. Because men are trash, right?
Wrong. Well, sometimes wrong. We asked men, and masculine-presenting people aged 8 to 102 about what makes them hard. This is a show about what we learnt: about strength, fitting in, feeling yourself, and arseholes.
Through singing, dancing, and f*cking around in crap drag, Ell and Mary write a love letter to masculinity which they are forever tearing up and taping back together again.
This event is part of Queer Contact. Each February, as part of LGBT History Month, Queer Contact’s programming converges in a festival of events – Queer Contact Festival – featuring the best performance, music, spoken word, dance, theatre and visual art with local young people and performers interacting with the best UK and international talent.
