    Controversial playwright Ravenhill 'Shopping Fucking' returns to the theme of the intersection of sex and commerce in this satirical faux Restoration comedy in which upon the demise of her husband Mrs Tull decides to transform her tally shop costume rentals to whores to a lucrative 'molly house' costumes for transvestites Meanwhile in contemporary London a group of posh gays throw a sex party at which no one seems to be having much fun

    Not the book I wanted I wanted the original by Rictor Norton This is a couple of plays and I was terribly disappointed He ripped off the title

    Mother Clap's Molly House is nothing if not raucous and funny but where this thing really excels is the wicked and fundamentally cynical regard it holds for the intersection of tolerance humanity and above all the almighty dollar In typical Homo PoMo a phrase I'll never miss an opportunity to use tradition Ravenhill is uestioning the historical narrative here but makes a rather unexpected move by turning his eye critically toward that which other gay literature or film is likely to glorify In fact by the end of the thing a reader might even detect a streak of subtle socialsexual conservatism It's not an easy pill to swallow nor is it one I'm certain I have an interest in swallowing but there's something incredibly admirable about a voice as acerbic as Ravenhill's in this playOh and it's also really funny

    A fun play about sexuality and commerce and how commerce might lead to acceptance as well as the repercussions that might lead to a distance between peopleHowever much of this play feels like a romp especially in how the play revels in the mentality of the characters and it would be up to the production and audience to comment on this worldThat being said I call dibs on playing the MartinTom character
