Ad Libido

Written by Fran Bushe

Finished run

AGES: 14+

Fran wants to fix sex. No matter how many wonder-cures she tries, how many trips to the doctor or offers of help from friends, she doesn’t feel like her fire’s been lit. Sometimes it hurts. Join Fran on this quest, with songs, as she pursues a satisfying sex-life. Expect toe-tapping tunes, a magic penis and a visit to sex camp. Oh, and dolphins.

Ad Libido explores Fran’s own experience of female sexual dysfunction (which covers problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm or pain during sex), a condition affecting around 40% of women at some point in their lives.

One of The Guardian’s Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018.

The play has been adapted into a comedy blap on Channel 4 (See Here)

We had a lovely chat with @FergusMorgan about how we’ve managed to survive the past year (god bless @ace_national) and the future of our little pub theatre. Can’t wait to have a pint with you all soon🍻…
