★★★★ The Guardian ★★★★ The Stage



Fran wants to want sex. But no matter how many wonder cures she tries, she doesn't feel like her fire's been lit. Sometimes it hurts.

Join Fran on a 'relentlessly hilarious' (The Stage) quest, with songs, as she pursues a "normal" sex life. Expect toe-tapping tunes, a magic penis and a visit to Sex Camp.

Ad Libido explores Fran's own experience of Female Sexual Dysfunction, (which covers problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm or pain during sex) a condition affecting at least 43% of women.

Ad Libido was selected for the prestigious Litmus Fest and has since been developed at Theatre Deli and Art Depot. It had an award winning ★★★★★ run at VAULT Festival and was listed as one of the best shows at the Edinburgh Fringe by The Guardian. 

Ad Libido ran a "Dear 16 year old me.." campaign where audience members responded to the show by sharing one thing they wish they'd known at 16 about sex or life, in an attempt to tackle some taboos surrounding sex.

Ad Libido was supported by a the Arts Council England.
