Following last year’s hit Unreachable, Anthony Neilson returns to the Royal Court’s Jerwood Theatre Upstairs with his new comedy The Prudes.

Jess and Jimmy haven’t done… well… “it” in a year. Fourteen months and four days, to be exact. And it’s definitely not the seven year itch – they’ve been together nine.

Now they’re coming together in a last-ditch effort to reboot their sex life and save their relationship. But a lot has changed in a year – for them, and for the world.

The Prudes is a comedy about relationships in the current sexual climate, and a vicious satire on the male response to it.

Neilson’s other previous works include Narrative, Relocated, and The Lying Kind.
