David Bowie inspired play visits The Salberg
Salisbury Playhouse is delighted that the award-winning The Wardrobe Ensemble returns to The Salberg from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 October with its latest tour, 1972: The Future of Sex.
The show uses The Wardrobe Ensemble’s trademark inventive theatricality, irreverent humour and spectacular ensemble moments to tell the story of 3 couples having sex for the first time on the night that David Bowie first appeared as Ziggy Stardust on Top of the Pops.
The Wardrobe Ensemble has previously performed in The Salberg with their productions RIOT, 33 and The Star Seekers.
Directors of 1972: The Future of Sex Tom Brennan and Jesse Jones said: “We’re thrilled to take 1972: The Future of Sex on the road to some of our favourite venues across the UK. We decided to use the lens of the seventies to examine the topic because, as well as being a pivotal moment in sexual history (a seemingly consequence-free era post-the pill and pre-AIDS), it also gave us the distance to comment on sex and sexuality today. It also gave us a really great soundtrack.”
The Wardrobe Ensemble is a group of theatre artists from Bristol working together to make new plays that dissect the twenty-first century experience. They have toured nationally and internationally to venues including the National Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, Bristol Old Vic and Jack, Brooklyn.
1972: The Future of Sex is performed by Tom Crosley-Thorne, Tom England, Emily Greenslade, Kerry Lovell, Jesse Meadows, Helena Middleton, James Newton and Ben Vardy.
1972: The Future of Sex is suitable for those aged 14 years and over and visits The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse for just four performances from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 October. For tickets or more information please contact the Ticket Office on 01722 320333 or visit the show page.
