“The articles are shit. No offence, Charlotte. But no one buys our publication principally for the literature. I think it’s important to recognise that.”
Lucy Kirkwood’s quick wit and dark comedy holds a lens to the hypocrisy of modern journalism in her 2012 play, NSFW. Lad’s mag Doghouse is in trouble: after mistakenly featuring a topless image of an underage girl, her furious father threatens to bring down the magazine.
Fired from Doghouse, Sam interviews for women’s fashion weekly Electra but quickly discovers unsettling parallels between the two – forcing him to choose between compromising his values, or yet another unpaid internship he cannot afford. Who is to blame for increasing objectification of women? Must you sacrifice your principles to secure your livelihood?
Reviewers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange comps for any performances. Please let us know which day you are coming and we will set two tickets aside at the box office.
