This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Mitri is a sweet young terrorist who must lose his virginity tonight.
But will he even get out of the brothel alive?
There’s only one bordello left in the middle of a brutal warzone. It’s being bulldozed tomorrow morning. Inside, the atmosphere’s like an X-rated mad hatter’s tea party. The Madam refuses to serve Mitri unless he joins in the surreal parlour games the prostitutes are playing. Reckless with lust, he agrees. They immediately lock the doors…
The Last Bordello is an ingeniously fiendish labyrinth that gets more puzzling and suspenseful with every wrong turn - think Margaret Atwood meets David Lynch. An absurd, sensual and provocative parable about trust and truth, domination and devotion, fact and fiction.
Created by David Leddy, ‘theatrical maverick’ (Guardian), ‘iconoclast’ (List), ‘genius’ (Scotsman) and maker of hit shows Coriolanus Vanishes, International Waters, Long Live The Little Knife and Sub Rosa.
