Overview

It's 1972. An era of possibility and polyester and pubic hair. While Ziggy Stardust is on Top of the Pops, Penny is writing an essay on Lady Chatterley's Lover, Christine is watching Deep Throat and Brian is confused.

Devised by the company, 1972: The Future of Sex incorporates The Wardrobe Ensemble's trademark theatricality, irreverent humour and ensemble ingenuity to tell the story of three couples having sex for the first time - and a country on the brink of a sexual awakening. Commissioned by Shoreditch Town Hall, the play was first seen there in 2014, before a UK tour in 2015, including performances at Bristol Old Vic and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It was revived at the Bristol Old Vic in 2019.

The Wardrobe Ensemble is a group of theatre artists based in Bristol, working together to make new plays that dissect the twenty-first-century experience. Their other plays include Education, Education, Education; South Western and RIOT.
