We are Grace and Bryony, two emerging theatre-makers. Together, we are Screw Productions: a London and Amsterdam based Theatre Company making funny, relevant feminist theatre about sex.
Our show WET debuted in May in Theatre N16 and now we’re taking it overseas! We are really excited to be bringing our show to Perdu Theatre in Amsterdam in October later this year.
What is WET About?
WET is a comedy about porn, sex, female friendship and figuring yourself out. Sophie is a newly single prude who wants to be able to be more sexually adventurous. Holly is her more sexually free best friend who wants to try something different. Together they decide to write and make a feminist porn film, along the way, they make some discoveries about their own desires and sexuality. Wet is a show about sexual expectations and what to do when those expectations don’t live up to your fantasies.
WET was written in collaboration with Bryony and Grace, who wanted to write a play that dealt with issues such a feminist porn and sexuality in a fun and joyful way.
Why do we think WET is important?
We think WET is important because it’s a light-hearted and fun show about female sexuality that doesn’t demonise its subjects for enjoying sex and porn. It explores wider issues many women still have around sex. In 2018, a lot of women now know it’s okay to have a lot of sex, but are still at a loss of how to make sure they enjoy it. This show is about looking at sex from the female perspective, and encourages all women to talk about their different desires and needs in a non-judgemental way.
This show also deals with important issues such as the orgasm gap, female queer relationships and self-expression.
Why do we need your help?
Making theatre is sadly very expensive and since self-funding our last show, we are asking for a little bit of help with our next productions of WET. Amsterdam will be an amazing opportunity to work with an international theatre team and will give us a chance to develop the show and broaden our skills as theatre-makers.
We would really like to be able to cover our expenses for things like rehearsal room costs, paying our actors, and buying some decent props.
We are hoping to take the show back to London in 2019 so any funds you give us will also help us bring WET back to where it started, and to make sure as many people as possible see our show.
