Traverse Theatre Company

Director Orla O’Loughlin

Following overwhelming response from previous runs at the Traverse Theatre, Abbey Theatre, Latitude Festival and Scottish Parliament, Locker Room Talk returns to continue a conversation about misogyny and masculinity which has become even more urgent since its premiere.

Created in response to the Donald Trump’s infamous “grab them by the pussy” comment, Locker Room Talk is a provocative exploration of how men speak about women in men-only spaces, asking if such sexually abusive rhetoric can really be accepted as mere ‘locker room talk’, or whether such attitudes are much more ingrained and drive abusive behaviour.

Writer Gary McNair interviewed hundreds of men from a wide variety of backgrounds. A selection of these conversations is performed, verbatim, by a cast of 4 women. Each performance is followed by a post-show conversation, giving the audience opportunity to participate, ask questions, examine the issues raised and consider where we go from here.

A challenging, disturbing piece, Locker Room Talk comes from a place of anger, compassion and – ultimately - optimism.
