Dark comic queer thriller Sex/Crime will transfer to Soho Theatre in January 2020.
Following a critically acclaimed, sell-out run at alternative East End queer venue The Glory, ‘Sex/Crime’ is to transfer to Soho Theatre from Tuesday 21 January – Saturday 1 February 2020
An exciting, challenging play that explores sex, violence, language, fear, intimacy, division, power and queerness, ‘Sex/Crime’ is a controversial and shocking statement on the state of today, both a hard-hitting ‘in ya face’ drama and an outrageous comedy.
‘Sex/Crime’ is written by playwright and performer Alexis Gregory whose recent self-performed slow show ‘Riot Act’ played to great acclaim in the West End, Arcola Theatre and on a UK tour.

The show is directed by multi award-winning theatre and opera director Robert Chevara with lighting by Olivier Award winning designer Mike Robertson.
Robert Chevara said: “‘Sex/Crime’ is a mixture of treacle-black humour, insanity and life at the edge of delirium. It’s also a powerful statement on how we all live today and the isolation which pushes us to the extremes of experience. It’s an atomic bomb of theatrical power, daring and the pursuit of desire and fulfilment at any cost. Hilarious. Dangerous. Tragic.”
Sex/Crime runs from 21 January 2020 until 1 February 2020 at Soho Theatre, London.
