Pig and Sissy want to eradicate porn forever. This is not an easy thing to do, but they’re trying. They feel they have to. To be clear, they’re not prudes, or conservative, or Catholic. This is not a show about love, or desire, or even sex. This is just about pornography. Kind of.

DIRECTORS’ CUTS SEASON 2019
The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its thirteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the third time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.
“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”

The Directors ’Cuts seasons have become known for showcasing edgy, contemporary theatre, and We Want You To Watch certainly lives up to that reputation. I found it disturbing, fantastical, and thought-provoking by turns. It is also, at times, very funny indeed.
