The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo

    Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh Festival

    The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo follows Thunderbirds fan and romantically clueless Peter as he attempts to navigate the colourful world of internet dating and online swinging websites.

    This is a candid look at the rules and rituals that govern the lives of people who use the internet to find anonymous sex, which was inspired by an anonymous text message that Jon received; "Last night was amazing. I've never done it with a guy and a girl before".

    Whereas Jon deleted this text, Peter replies, and so begins his sordid, hilarious and eye-opening journey into this online community.

    The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011 before transferring to Theatre 503 Autumn 2011.
