SLUTNIK™ 2: Planet of the Incels
Get ready for touchdown. Queer darling SLUTNIK™ (created by Flick) returns with its highly anticipated sequel, premiering at Theatre Works.
More than a century ago, a legendary crew of lesbian space cannibals triumphantly left Earth and all of its problems behind. Today, their descendants (and MOTHERBOARD) are forced to emergency land their battered star-ship onto a foreign planet and come face-to-face with all the problems they thought they had left behind: Men.
Prepare for an intergalactic battle of slutty proportions.
This sequel has all the excitement of the smash-hit original, with a never seen before and never-to-be-repeated stunt in the SLUTNIK™ universe: an ensemble of men on stage. Planet of the Incels is a politicised Magic Mike, a sexy Louis Theroux documentary, and an ode to retro-futurism, 70s & rhinestone cowboys.
“Theatre may never be the same.” - The Age
Created by award winning playwright Flick and directed by critically acclaimed Tansy Gorman, SLUTNIK™ once again teams with dramaturg Enya Daly and crowd favourite Matilda Gibbs to reprise her role of MOTHERBOARD. Playing for a limited season in September 2023, SLUTNIK™ 2: Planet of the Incels is a space adventure you do not want to miss out on. WARNING: Bring an umbrella, because it’s raining men.
