Before 140 characters, there were long, hand-written letters. And a lot of them were proper filthy. Come and witness a selection of the most shocking, tender, specific, and hilarious sex letters from dead people including James Joyce, Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keefe, read by alive ones including  Brian Lobel, Naomi Woddis, Rachael Young and Rachel Mars. If you haven’t heard ‘Arse-wise’ used in a sentence yet, this is your chance.

“An eye-wateringly explicit new stage show celebrates erotic correspondence sent by famous figures through the ages” – The Guardian previews Your Sexts Are Shit. Read it here
