Created in response to Donald Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comment, Locker Room Talk is a provocative exploration of how men speak about women behind their back.

Can such sexually provocative conversation be accepted as ‘locker room talk’, or do such attitudes drive abusive behaviour? Does Trump speak to a silent majority or is he simply a loathsome individual?

Writer Gary McNair interviewed dozens of men from a vast array of backgrounds.

Four women perform a selection of these conversations.

Following an overwhelming response from previous runs at the Traverse Theatre, Abbey Theatre, Latitude Festival and The Scottish Parliament, Locker Room Talk comes to Reading with a new cast to continue a conversation about misogyny and masculinity.

To further discussions inspired from the play, there will be a post-show Q&A session following the performance of Locker Room Talk on Wednesday 3rd July. Leading academics and members of the creative team will speak on the subject of ‘Where do we go from here?
