Theatre Paradok presents: “Blueballs” written by Iris Supple-Still.

A bedroom. Two young adults. Just married. They don’t know each other and – ceremony and piss-up over – are alone for the first time. He, a hedonistic rich boy; charismatic, self-destructive, on his 4th arranged wedding in so many years. She, reserved, quick-witted and sharp; on her guard. As their encounter unfolds, an intriguing chemistry between them turns dark as terrible truths begin to emerge. A version of the famous tale Bluebeard for our generation, Blueballs is a thrilling investigation of power, consent, and what it means to be young. A 30-minute tequila-shot of theatre in free verse.
