You want me to have full penetrative sex with your son, right? I just wanted to, you know, check.

Jack, a young man with a learning disability, lives at home, cared for by his devoted parents. Like most men in their twenties, he has needs – his mates at the rugby club talk about nothing but getting laid, whilst Jack's most erotic experience to date is the time he was winked at by the pretty cashier in Lloyds. Desperate for their son to not feel left out, his parents decide to bring in a professional. But the woman they hire has a far more profound impact on the whole family than they could ever have imagined.

Written by writer Sarah Page, this text has been published to coincide with Kuleshov Theatre's 2017 production at Theatre503.
