About the play
A dark, romantic comedy, this story follows a feminist teen blogger who decides it is time to prove that sex on the web is not just for men.
During a rainy summer in a northern seaside town, Amy resolves to show that sexual choice is firmly in the hands of women, by persuading new love interest Callum to film her first time. Meanwhile, Callum has his own issues to deal with, including a mother on the edge of a nervous breakdown and an obsession with faded porn star Jaze.
