A funny and intimate queer one-person play exploring sexuality, shame … and toilets.

He’s lost in life. He doesn’t have a job, he doesn’t have direction … but he does have a secret. He spends his days cruising men’s toilets, finding secret pleasure with strangers. But over the course of the play, his secrets start to catch up on him, his shame builds, and the people around him start to pay the price …

Henry Roberts is a queer writer and photographer originally from Lancashire now based in London. In his work, Henry explores questions of memory, identity and intimacy in an uncertain world. He was a member of the Young Vic’s 2022 cohort of young theatre-makers. His plays have reached the final 100 submissions for the Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award and have been long listed in the RSC’s 37 Plays project and by the Traverse Theatre.
