Sex Lives of Others

Keely Winstone
Pleasance Courtyard

This 45-minute comedy has seemingly been written with a teen market in mind.

The more charitable might categorise the humour as a sex romp, though smutty in the least complimentary sense might be closer to the truth.

It features pairs of next door neighbours. The younger couple, Sonny and Kes talk tediously about sex but don’t deliver.

They are however amused and shocked that the next door neighbours, Hils and James might still be active. They in turn speculate on a similar basis about the fantasies of his parents.

The jokes are old and situations predictable in a play that harks back to sex comedy films of the 1970s without any sense of discovering anything new in a topic that ought to be infinitely interesting.
