Bottom

This event has passed

Locked in his bathroom during a tragic third date, Willy Hudson asks: are you a top or a bottom?

Bottom is about bums, Beyoncé and burnt fish fingers. Join Willy for a queer coming-of-age remix, as he questions if ‘bottom’ in the bedroom means ‘bottom’ in life – and whether Beyoncé can help put his love on top.

With a cracking soundtrack, Willy’s funny, honest and open-hearted storytelling yanks the lid off the queer experience. He faces performance anxiety and the realities of being overworked, underpaid and under-respected.

This is for anyone who hates making the first move.

Anyone who thinks they are unlovable.

Anyone that’s ever tried to be someone they’re not.

Following a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe and UK tour, Willy brings Bottomto Salford. Developed with support from The Arts Council, Exeter Phoenix, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, and Bryony Kimmings.
