Lisa's Sex Strike

Lisa's Sex Strike

It’s 2007 in the northern mill-town of Blackhurst and racial tensions are tearing the mixed community apart. Summat MUST to be done, and sharpish.

Radical behaviour requires a radical plan and Lisa hatches an outrageous plot to encourage peace – a sex strike – with riotously funny consequences. But as the women of Blackhurst strive towards love…not war…they make a disturbing discovery that turns their local dispute into a demonstration of global proportions.

Northern Broadsides bring their inimitable blend of charisma, high energy, and northern grit to this wicked comedy, written by acclaimed writer, Blake Morrison.

This play contains sexually explicit language and is not suitable for children under 16.
