Introducing the first of many spectacular performances to grace the stage of the nabokov Arts Club at VAULT - a fantastic new play by Lolly Jones: ‘This isn’t a thing, right?’ Maddy: 'Pearson’s not a Metrosexual. He is quite accidentally, unequivocally and unapologetically, a man'.
Pearson: 'Tell me you love my cock'.
Maddy: 'It’s cold. I’m stood by Chicken Cottage. Let me the fuck in'.
Written and co-performed by Lolly Jones, ‘This isn’t a thing, right?’ tells the story of two fuckbuddies, treading water in a vacuous, crumbling London, and their meeting one night, two floors above a late eatery on the (not-quite-Shoreditch) Old Street roundabout.
