Imagine hearing words from a lover you've never met. Or reading the sexual fantasies of a man who cannot spell. This is Dirty Fan Male. This cult and award winning hit of the 2004 and 2006 Edinburgh Fringe comes to the Cube bigger, harder and ever so slightly filthier than before.
Dirty Fan Male is a piece of comedy/documentary theatre. The premise is simple: genuine letters sent to porn stars are performed as they were written. There is heartbreaking illiteracy, twisted words of passion, sexual tragedy and some of the kinkiest thoughts ever scrawled by man.
Punctuating this rare collection of correspondence is the bizarre story behind them all. It's a tale of randy pensioners, obsessive mail-order pornography and panties in the post. Dirty Fan Male offers you a rare glimpse into a world behind drawn curtains, one of lonely men, unrequited love and accidental poetic genius.
