THE LAST BORDELLO
2018: 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…
Like the bastard child of Margaret Atwood and David Lynch, The Last Bordello is an ingeniously fiendish labyrinth that gets more puzzling and suspenseful with every wrong turn. 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.
Presented by Fire Exit in co-production with Tron Theatre.
"There are few writers so capable of mixing ideas with gaudy, glorious coups de théâtre, and few so capable of messing with your head."
“Scotland’s leading theatrical innovator”
"A theatrical maverick with a propensity for fearless experiment."
