Five Guys Chillin' returns after its highly-acclaimed sell-out run
Five Guys Chillin' returns to the Kings Head Theatre after smashing it in 2015 with a sell-out, super-acclaimed run. A graphic, gripping, funny and frank verbatim drama exposing the gay chillout scene, it takes an original look into the drug-fuelled, hedonistic, highly secret world of chem-sex, Grindr and instant gratification. There is no typical participant: from surgeons to students, couples to kink; guys that love it and lost guys longing to be loved, there's a diverse range of characters involved. Taken from over 50 hours of interviews from guys found through Grindr and other social media, this is an important look at the relatively new scene that social media apps have been fundamental in creating. Five Guys Chillin’ looks at changing attitudes to sex, relationships, dating, HIV and to our perception of what sexual relations can and should be.

“It’s beautifully done, bold and it tackles the issues that hit home. Race, HIV, drugs, sex, love, intimacy, lust and pain...in a very sensitive and even funny way”.
