‘A non-stop effervescent farce.’
Irish Independent

‘A fast paced, very funny, contemporary farce…thoroughly recommended.’
★★★★ Public Reviews

A clever comedy about the dumb consequences of hot sex meeting cold statistics.

Alan and Robin are a go-getting couple who want to spice up their sex life. Jezebel is a woe-fretting singleton who’s looking to get one. Could a threesome be the answer to all their problems?

Follow this unlikely trio on a fast-paced adventure of misunderstandings and unexpected complications. Jezebel is a light-hearted lesson in what not to do when your sex life needs saving.

Dublin-based Rough Magic are delighted to be back at the Soho Theatre with this slice of 21st century Ireland, winner of the prestigious Stewart Parker New Playwright Bursary 2012.

‘Dating is always worth a shot. If they like you great. If not, well, it’s been a learning experience. Apart from that one guy who wanted to get a guide dog so he could text while he was walking. I learned nothing from that encounter.’

For ages: 15+
Running time: approx 80 min
