About: The Censor

Female-led RoundPeg Theatre bring Anthony Neilson’s controversial play to London for the first time in 15 years.

Art. Porn. What’s the difference?

A female pornographer comes face to face with a censor – the man whose job it is to determine whether her work can see the light of day. She needs to convince him to see beyond the graphic images if it’s ever going to stand a chance of being released.

But the war she’s fighting is about far more than just one film. She dreams of a day when films like hers can be shown in every multiplex in the land, to every man, woman and child. When that day comes, there’ll be no more repression, no more witch-hunts. It’ll be a world absolutely without guilt or shame.

Previously described as “shocking”, “addictive” and “disturbing”, this is a tender exploration into sex, pleasure and taboo.
