About Ode To Joy

Ode to Joy (How Gordon got to go to the nasty pig party)

Gordon is homonormative and fears he might be pathologically boring until he meets C**pig and Manp***y at a sex party in Leith. When they tell him about Europe's biggest gay sex party in Berlin, Gordon obviously wants to go, but can he really transform into a sex pig?

A new LGBTQ play about love, friendship and Schokoladenkuchen written and directed by playwright James Ley (Wilf, Love Song to Lavender Menace), featuring a techno soundscape from DJ Simonotron (Hot Mess). Supported by Creative Scotland and Platform.

Warnings: Scenes of a sexual nature, strobe lighting, strong language/swearing and contains depictions of drug use.

Suitable For 18+
