Hilarious, challenging and heart-breaking, Jon Bradfield's play won the inaugural Through The Mill Prize (Hope Mill Theatre supported by Jonathan Harvey), and was shortlisted in the top five for the Papatango Prize out of more than 1,500 entries.

Meet David – gay, disabled and profoundly horny. He can’t eat, drink or shower by himself – let alone the rest. Totally inexperienced, he embarks on a sexual and romantic odyssey, armed with a fierce brain and impressive nudes (that he has to get someone else to take). But can David keep it casual whilst also relying on round-the-clock care? Can he manage the thrill and uncertainty of random hook-ups after a lifetime of knock-backs?

 

Jon Bradfield co-wrote Above The Stag Theatre’s acclaimed series of queer adult pantomimes, most recently Dick Whittington – A New Dick in Town (★★★★ The Guardian, ★★★★★ The Stage), and he wrote Missing Alice for the BBC and Old Vic. Josh Hepple is an activist with severe cerebral palsy. He has a masters in law and teaches at various universities. He has been a theatre reviewer, and is an equality trainer and a writer-journalist at The Guardian and Huffington Post.
