London’s longest running off West End show puts on a fundraiser for the gay men’s health charity
The outrageous comedy of gay sexual manners, ‘F!#king Men’, is celebrating becoming the longest running Off West End production by holding a benefit performance for the gay men’s health charity, GMFA on Thursday 21st May.
Originally intended for a three week run, this sexy, controversial, critically acclaimed comedy has continuously played to packed houses, in The Kings Head’s late night slot, since January.
A new booking period (until June 6th) will make it London’s longest running Off West End hit. To celebrate this achievement all proceeds from ticket sales for the performance on 19th May will be donated to GMFA, the UK’s leading gay men’s health charity.
Set in today’s America, this insightful drama looks at a succession of couples and strangers as they negotiate the before and after of lust, love and betrayal and the pursuit of gay sex. Some stories are poignant, some hilarious but collectively they provide a fascinating snap shot of the American male in pursuit of man-on-man action. The 90 minute production is staged by the multi-award winning director Phil Willmott, based on his original 2008 presentation at the Finborough Theatre and produced by The King’s Head in association with The Steam Industry.
GMFA’s Matthew Hodson said, “GMFA and the play ‘F!#king Men’ both deal with many of the challenges of gay sex and intimacy in the 21st Century. Gay men are still the group most affected by HIV in the UK. The campaigns and resources that GMFA produce to support gay men living with HIV, such as the website for positive gay men, get no Government funding and so we depend on the support of the community to continue with this work. I’m really pleased that the play has been such a huge success and we are thrilled that the ‘F!#king Men’ company have offered to raise funds for GMFA in this way.”
Tickets for ‘F!#king Men’ cost between £12.50 and £20 and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0844 412 2953 or going to The King’s Head Theatre || London N1.
