It has been announced that Joe DiPietro’s critically acclaimed play F*cking Men will extend its run at the King’s Head Theatre from 5 September – 26 September 2015. The play is a moving portrayal of hunger and desire as it follows the erotic encounters of 10 men in their interconnected search for sexual satisfaction. Each scene in the play is a frank, candid and sometimes brutally honest depiction of the lustful transaction between two men. It is a loose adaptation of the 19th century play La Ronde in which pairings of characters are featured in scenes preceding and succeeding sexual encounters. F*cking Men originally played at the Kings Head in 2009 and became the longest ever Off West End run of a play running for 9 months. Is this production set to repeat that record-breaking run?
