Science and sex take centre stage in the world premiére of Bonk!: the sci-fact-romp-com play that explores sex from various positions and takes the Edinburgh Fringe firmly by the balls and beakers!
Inspired by the New York Times' bestselling novel 'Bonk: the curious coupling of Science and Sex', Bonk! is a titillating look at the biology, chemistry and physics of sex via the enthralling and often bizarre microcosm of sex research scientist Cat, and her disgruntled husband Sam.
Bonk! takes a broader look at sex within the media and the scientific community. It embraces the awkward and sticky situations anyone ‘having the sex’ can get into. From musical numbers and sex research patients to horny university students and animal sexologists—no position is left unexplored. When the board threaten to pull the plug on Cat's research, she faces the real prospect of losing the man she adores for the work she loves.
Kriya Arts co-produced Bonk! for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013.
