Mike Bartlett (author of this season’s Broadway hit, King Charles III) won London’s 2010 Olivier award for Outstanding Achievement for this hypnotic and uproariously funny play, that is much more than its provocative title. John, the protagonist, has been in a stable relationship with his boyfriend for many years but falls in love with a woman! A dinner party with the two lovers is arranged and, as both parties are prepared to fight to keep him, a battle royal ensues. A comic and highly theatrical discussion of identity and sexuality, the play is performed without props or scenery, placing the focus solely on the actors and the drama of the situation.
