Locker Room Talk

Traverse Theatre By Gary McNair

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

Created in response to 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 dozens of men from a wide variety of backgrounds. A selection of these conversations are performed, verbatim, by a cast of four women.

Each performance is followed by a post-show conversation, giving the audience an opportunity to participate and ask questions.

Supported by Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.
