The Year of Magical Wanking
By Neil Watkins. Director: Phillip McMahon. Designer: Ciarán O'Melia. Theatreworks. January 17 - 29, 2012
It's hard to take some of the toughest taboos of gay life –HIV, drugs, sexual addiction –and make a theatre piece that's beautiful.
Fit Irish lad Neil Watkins performs a poetic monologue, going into the joys of wanking, the realities of life with HIV (you get free food, bless!), an addiction to the kinkiest porn imaginable, and lots and lots of smoking weed.
