Halfway through Tessa Waters’ latest offering Sexytime!, I thought I was going to be sick. Two glasses of savy blanc, combined with 30 minutes of non-stop laughter, left my head feeling lighter than a helium balloon (which, incidentally, will be extinct in 40 years when all the Earth’s helium is used up).
Relief was far from sight; from the curious opening flourishes of the Adam and Eve interpretive dance, to the smouldering gazes of the closing ‘morning after’ scenario, Tessa Waters (as Woman) and Kai Smythe (as Man) owned the petite Town Hall stage.
Everyone is sure to find some echo of their own ‘sexytimes’ in this extremely physical comedy, whether it be the jaunty goodbye scene following a one-night stand or the hip-bumping mating dance to Mr President’s Coco Jambo that preceeded it. My advice? Go easy on the pre-drinks; and don’t sit in the front row if men fondling their belly buttons turns you off.
Final word: Salacious
