    Award-winning company The Wardrobe Ensemble bring their Edinburgh smash hit 1972: The Future of Sex to their home town of Bristol.

    It’s 1972. An era of possibility, polyester and pubic hair.

    Ziggy Stardust is on Top of the Pops, Penny is writing an essay on Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Christine is watching Deepthroat. Brian is confused.

    The Wardrobe Ensemble tell the story of the class of ‘72 with a handsome funk guitarist and some spacehoppers. Was it easier back then? Where did we go wrong?

    1972: The Future of Sex is a brisk romp through the ins and outs of those excellently awkward first sexual encounters from the company who brought you 33 and Riot. It was exceptionally received at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year, where it won The Stage Award for Acting Excellence.

    We’re delighted to support 1972: The Future of Sex through our Artist Development Fund, which is supported by Rathbones.
