He’s horny, outrageous, a little bit lonely… and well and truly about to blow.
Gay and perpetually single, “Him” is in need of lots of cock, lots of coke and lots of fancy rich people parties to go to. He basically wants Billie Piper’s life, circa 2001. But unfortunately for Him, he is in fact a 23 year old virgin who looks closer to 30 than 20, who lives in zone 5. The closest he’s come to getting featured on page six of the Evening Standard was when he handed out a free copy of Time Out to Martine McCutcheon outside Clapham Common tube station. And to make matters worse, his Dad is still very much dead.
Following an intense burst of unrequited love towards his gay best friend, Him finds himself at a crossroads – whether he should pursue a lifestyle full of bullshit self-destruction, or instead exorcise the demons he has surrounding his grief, his sexuality and the very world he lives in. “Blowhole” is a new play written and performed by Benjamin Salmon (Soho Theatre Writers Lab 2017/18) and directed by Tom Wright (“Tumble Tuck”, Underbelly; “My Dad’s Gap Year”, Park Theatre; “Undetectable”, King’s Head).
