Interrogating the challenge of opening up and accepting our own vulnerabilities, Sessions by Ifeyinwa Frederick (writer of The Hoes at Hampstead Theatre) is a raw, funny, bittersweet deep-dive into the complexities of masculinity, depression and therapy.

What a Dina Martina show is, is a smart and hilarious evening of entertainment you will never forget.

Martina has shared the bill with acts such as Margaret Cho, Alan Cumming, Justin Vivian Bond and Bridget Everett.

Award-winning theatre maker Rachel Mars visits Soho Theatre for the first time with a gloriously rude new show that unearths the hot-as-hell letters that make sexts blush.

Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And loads of them were proper filthy. With the help of the internet, friends and two sexologists, Rachel has unearthed missives dating back centuries. Triangulating these sex and love letters of long dead artists with contemporary sexts and a meditation on the construction of the queer female body, the show is a tender and surprising hour that asks - how do we write ourselves and for whom?

Come! Take pleasure in James Joyce's passion for arse, find out who sneaked her gay lover into the White House, hear from Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Mozart and bear witness to the best/worst sexts ever sent.

This delightfully intimate, very funny and surprisingly moving show is an erotic archive shot through with Rachel's personal ventures in contemporary Queer kink.

And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you've healed.

This is a new day.

Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us - new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.

Following a sell-out run in May 2021, Soho Theatre revives Amanda Wilkin's, 2020 Verity Bargate Award winning play, sponsored by Character 7, introducing audiences to a fresh and fierce new voice.

Since 1982, the biennial playwriting award competition has uncovered the best new play by an emerging UK and Irish writer and launched the careers of some of Britain's most established writers. From a record number of 1493 entries for the 2020 Verity Bargate Award, Amanda Wilkin's spellbinding play captivated the Award's readers and judges, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Lolita Chakrabati (Hymn), Russell T Davies (It's A Sin), Laura Wade (The Watsons) and Stephen Garrett (Character 7), and was announced as the winner in October 2020.

Shedding A Skin will be creating a relaxed, inclusive environment in Soho Theatre's Main House for all performances.

Soho Upstairs

Mon 22, Tue 23 Nov, 9.15pm

Tickets from £12

Felicity is back at Soho. And she's got something new to say.

Why didn't they tell me? About the hormone that makes your ribs move, that once your water breaks IT CAN KEEP BREAKING FOR 12 HOURS, that childbirth is the most punk thing anyone can do, that often in newborn parenthood I might want to get in the car and drive away from my family forever, that during lockdown I'd get so bored I'd make a list of animals I could beat in a fight...there's so much they didn't tell me. So now I'm telling you.

After having a baby and enduring a pandemic (like everybody else) and not having done a new show since her Edinburgh Award nominated Busting A Nut in 2018, Felicity Ward has decided to come back with three full hours of comedy - the first on Pregnancy, the second on Birth and the third on Parenthood. There's a complacency about birth. Like we get it. It's a big deal, human life, blah blah blah, but we've heard it right? Not enough. Not. For. A. Second. Enough.

MAE MARTIN: SAP

Soho Downstairs

Mon 22 Nov - Sat 11 Dec

Tickets from £18

The co-writer and BAFTA-nominated star of Channel Four and Netflix sitcom Feel Good, and star of their own Netflix stand-up special, is on tour...

In their brand new stand-up hour, Mae Martin looks at the uphill battle of trying to do the right thing in a world that sometimes seems to have lost its moral compass. With their characteristically manic self-reflection, they bounce between vice and virtue, optimism and pessimism, the urge to be our best selves versus the urge to gleefully give in to our more base instincts. But it's not all big questions - there's also a lot about sloths, moose, hot dogs, love, and tree sap.

Along with their new Channel Four and Netflix sitcom Feel Good, Mae is a multi award winning stand-up, who's also released two radio series for BBC Radio Four, and written the acclaimed book Can Everyone Please Calm Down? A Guide to 21st Century Sexuality.

ALFIE BROWN: SENSITIVE MAN

Soho Downstairs

Wed 26 - Sat 29 Jan, 8.45pm

Tickets from £12

Does emotion help us make moral judgments?

In this brand-new show, Alfie will address this question. It will address this questions using jokes. There is a joke about Formula1 that isn't actually about Formula1. There is a joke about shopping in a supermarket that is not really about shopping in a supermarket. There is a joke about parking tickets, and so on. These jokes will weave together to create something greater than the sum of their parts, answering a question about emotion and it's complicated relationship to morality. You can disagree, but you must laugh.

Note from Alfie...

[I refute that I am saying things to plainly and wilfully disrupt social progress. I am not. I might seem smug, I know, apologies, and I am often misunderstood. So at this particular point in the unfolding history of meaning, intention, signs and signifiers, I am going to sometimes going to tell you what I fucking mean.]

What do you do when the end of the world finally comes, and you realise it's going to happen slowly and boringly?

No sudden meteor strike. No thrilling zombie apocalypse. Just a gradual ebbing away of life as you knew it.

You close your curtains, hunker down and fixate over something shitty someone said to you in 2019.
