20th-22nd May

Rosy's theatre debut 'Passionate Machine' won Best New Play at the 2018 Fringe - and now she's back for more...

When bodybuilders and 80s action films unite, you can always count on one thing: a good hard flogging! And, for a young Rosy Carrick, witnessing characters like He-Man and Conan the Barbarian being beaten and humiliated by their male antagonists sparked the most glorious erotic obsession of her life. Now forty, with a grown-up daughter of her own and a string of failed relationships behind her, Rosy is on a mission to rediscover her sexual power – but can tortured beefcake really be the key to her salvation?

"Intelligent, articulate and funny" (The Scotsman)
