Presented as part of ABSOLUT Fringe 2011
THE YEAR OF MAGICAL WANKING
Neil Watkins has wanked more than is healthy, allegedly. One of Irelands most exciting artists and incendiary performers, Neil is a force of nature, a maverick, a 33-year old homosexual with a Jesus complex. On orders from Heaven, this is Neil’s journey through the wilderness of queerness; from Catholic Ireland to the cruising bars of the world, from suburban Head Shops to Native American ceremonies.
Named as Queer Notions 2010 Festival Highlight by The Irish Times, this is a brave and heartbreaking exploration of porn addiction, destructive sexual behaviour, Catholic guilt and family heartbreak. Written in hypnotic verse, it is both a profound personal journey and a furious state of the nation address.
“Truthful, heartfelt and immediately identifiable…astonishingly brave.” The Irish Times
Contains explicit adult themes and language.
