Awkward Productions present this critically-acclaimed, darkly comic production about love,acceptance and boundaries.

One-night stands are awkward. One-night standswith animals are more awkward. And when you're as desperate to please as Bobby, things get
awkward as fuck. He's just a guy with too much love to give, and a burning desire to give it to consensual adult mammals.

A one-man tragi-comedy, Rob Hayes’ play is a hilarious and disturbing psychological examination of loneliness. The production tackles mental health, focusing on how toxic masculinity can undermine loving and healthy social connections, while also illustrating the absurdity of society’s treatment of animals. While castrating, killing and eating animals is part of our everyday lives and docking tails, breeding and caging animals is acceptable, there is a definitive ethical line drawn at sex.

Reuniting the creative team from the previous runs - Linus Karp returns to his celebrated role of Bobby, directed by Katharine Armitage.

Victorian, unique and vintage are but a few ways to describe the eye-catching Old Joint Stock Theatre pub, sitting just shy of Birmingham City Centre.  Born originally as a library in 1862 then later a bank, this decadent and richly decorated Victorian pub sits comfortably opposite St Philips Cathedral…
