"So I think it's fair to say that most women almost definitely do masturbate, we just wait to discuss it in an oddly anonymous but public situation like this one" written by an anonymous woman; performed by an unprepared man.

No rehearsal, no preparation, no holds barred; this show is the thoughts of one woman when she thinks about sex with men. A different man every night is charged with reading her script aloud, sight unseen, in front of an audience -- you! Tackling not just sex but sexual politics, this important but anonymous female voice is brought hilariously to life each night by an utterly unprepared performer.

Presented by The Royal Court and now making its West Australian premiere, Manwatching is a funny, frank and occasionally explicit insight into heterosexual female desire.

Presented by:
Summer Nights, The Royal Court, Izzy McDonald and Gavin Roach
