Downstairs - Pleasance London


Suitable for ages 16 and above


Written by Alan Flanagan

“What do you get the man that already has everything?”

Cormac is an Irishman determined to unspool his sexual history – wanking off another lad in the showers after a Gaelic match, losing his virginity under the watchful eye of a looping ad for Footballers' Wives, sampling the sexual and pharmaceutical smorgasbord of London – all of which leads to a defining moment…

Following his first ever STI test, Cormac discovers the unthinkable: he's contracted everything, running the gamut from the potentially lethal to the irrepressibly itchy and back again. The doctor has pamphlets, but as Cormac sprints into the Archway traffic, only one word rattles around his mind: "Bingo"

Alan Flanagan (lead writer for award winning audio drama Dark Shadows: Bloodline)’s darkly comedic new play answers the age-old question "What do you get the man who has everything?" with a resounding "PENICILLIN"
