Iris Supple-Still Blueballs



One bedroom. Two 20-year-olds. Just married and strangers until hours ago – now the ceremony and piss-up is over, they are alone for the first time. He, a hedonistic rich boy; charismatic and self-destructive. She, more reserved, quick-witted and on her guard. As these two strangers attempt to ignite chemistry on their wedding night, terrible truths emerge. A thrilling, 40-minute tequila-shot of theatre in free verse, Blueballs is a twisted version of the twisted tale Bluebeard. This hard-hitting ride takes us on a brutal interrogation of power, consent, and what it means to "come of age".
