Sex Is Hard Work: The Cluny


An insightful and hilarious new play is launching at The Cluny in Newcastle this November. 

Sex is Hard Work, inspired by the book of the same name, sheds light on what life is really like for a UK sex worker - telling the story of a former Tyneside escort - with a story so outrageous that it will turn people's views on the trade forever. 

The play has been brought to life by Alison Stanley, North East playwright, actress and Writer of the Year finalist at the 2018 Culture Awards, this new hard-hitting monologue will reveal the hidden world of prostitution, as seen through eyes through its lead character.

Gather your bubble and get ready to sit back, laugh-out-loud and be taken back by this fantastic show.

Tickets are available to buy now.
