FOTB moreOne-woman comedy drama, exploring the affects of hypersexualised media on young people’s relationships, sex lives & self-esteem. This one woman comedy-drama aims to unpick female sexuality, and to ask how much are young women today in control of their sexuality and how much are they influenced by distorted images and messages in our media?

“And then he pretended to tie my hands behind my back, and the whole time he kept screaming ‘Shut the fuck up! Shut the fuck up!’ I tell you, it is so refreshing to be with someone who likes to fuck outside the box.” – Samantha, Sex And The City

Fucking Outside The Box tells the story of 18 year old Frankie as she attempts to act out a Sex and the City-inspired rape-fantasy role play, with an acquaintance she met at a party. Frankie is desperate to be sexually adventurous and desired, but can she deal with the realities of this increasingly dark encounter?
