Mother Clap’s Molly House

“Shit on those who call this sodomy / We call it fabulous!” A riotous musical play, bursting with outrageous characters, graphic sexuality, bawdy songs and handsome men!

A play with songs by Mark Ravenhill and Music by Matthew Scott.

It’s London, 1726 and Mrs Tull is struggling to save her frock-hire business. She hits on a plan to open a molly house – a brothel where the ‘girls’ are boys in frocks and the beer flows – and soon business is booming!

Meanwhile, in a trendy 21st century Bloomsbury loft, a gay relationship is disintegrating amidst the drugs and toys of a sex party.

Shifting deftly between time periods, Mark Ravenhill (Shopping and Fucking) creates a subversive and astringent satire that celebrates the diversity of human sexuality and explores our emotional need to form families whilst simultaneously slamming the commodification of sex.

After presenting the Australian premiere a decade ago, New Theatre revives this riotous musical play, bursting with outrageous characters, graphic sexuality, bawdy songs and handsome men!

“Wonderfully exuberant … celebrates Sodom like there’s no Gomorrah” The Guardian
“Not for the faint hearted or the closed minded … delicious crassness and unabashed openness and vulgarity add to the humour that delights the audience.” BroadwayWorld.com
