Presented by Eilidh MacAskill
A new solo performance about penis envy, masculinity, horses and DIY.
Tell me about it, Stud…
Well, Dr Freud tells me I’m missing something and I think he’s right. He tells me that until I get over it and turn my desire for that missing thing into a desire for a baby, I’m gonna be in deep shit. He also tells me he doesn’t really get chicks…
In STUD, Eilidh MacAskill dons her chaps and asks if size really does matter. As she explores her own female masculinity with some help from Dr. Freud himself alongside a patriarchal DIY expert, a macho cowboy and the famous talking horse Mister Ed, Eilidh ponders if she has Penis Envy or of it’s all a load of bollocks.
A stripped back show about penis envy, masculinity, horses and DIY, for anyone who likes their psychoanalysis heteronormative and their cowboys in the buff.
“A fully-frontal assault…hilarious and whimsical…cogent and provocative” ★★★★ Mary Brennan, The Herald
“MacAskill’s performance is full of kinks as she offers a challenge to misogyny.” Amelia Forsbrook, Exeunt
