"Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex. It is now technically feasible to reproduce without the aid of males (or, for that matter, females) and to produce only females. We must begin immediately to do so... The male is a biological accident."

Come and indulge your senses at Barefaced’s provocative new production. Taking inspiration from 4 prolific prostitutes from history this immersive journey will recount their dark, and at times, humorous stories. Meet Theresa Berkley a 19th Century Dominatrix, Marie Duplessis a famous French courtesan, Polly Adler a New York 1920’s brothel madam and Valerie Solanas, American prostitute turned Warhol assassin. What links all these extraordinary women is their distorted relationship to the sex trade and how they survive within this both illustrious and unyielding industry, the industry of Whore’s.
