presented by ACT UP in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2013
Venus/Mars is a play unapologetically about words…
Sex words, come here I hate you words, teasing words, small words, big words, bitter words, love words, grey words, our words, your words.
“She’s smiling again, stunning, I like this girl. Neither of us wanna let go. The lights flash, end of night looms. I motion her forward. “Let’s dance, it’s the last song.”
Daniel and Michelle first cross paths on the dance floor and gradually become an item. But they soon realise that relationships don’t always have fairytale endings. Sexual attraction soon gives way to negotiating the complexities of a grown-up relationship; toward a definition of what it really means to share your life with someone.
Set amongst the back drop of London’s bright city lights, this lyrical and poetic play explores love and intimacy in 21st century London with live music and exclusive soundtrack from Radio 1 DJ Dev.
The World Premier of Venus/Mars was at Old Red Lion Theatre.
This production has been supported by Arts Council England and the Royal Victoria Hall Foundation.
