Ambitious and provocative.

“Are you laughing or are you crying?”
From the excitement of the announcement of the 2012 London Olympic Games to the fear and confusion following the bombings of July 7, 2005, Pornography follows the private lives of eight people as they move inevitably towards a suicide bombing on the subway. The stories reveal complex lives in a society focused on objectification and fear.

“Standouts Melissa Oei, Vanessa Crouch, and Victor Hunter deliver emotionally grounded performances, and the ending is potent and affecting in its simplicity. Ambitious and provocative.”

-Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight: “Pornography is stylish, uncomfortable, provocative, and ambitious” 

“This show is a must see for any Fringe journeys out to the Cultch for the solid quality of its acting and the unique script. I really hope this wins a Fringe award. It certainly deserves a medal for intrigue.”

-Matthew Willis, PLANK Magazine: “Pornography – Intriguing Script with Top Notch Performances”
