One parent refuses to talk about sex. The other buys their child gay porn DVDs. 


In Sex Education, British performance artist, theatre-maker, and internet-provocateur Harry Clayton-Wright, explores how we learn about sex and how it shapes our lives, blending a no holds barred interview with his mum, startling performance, moving storytelling and some good old-fashioned gay porn that Harry’s dad bought for him when he was 14.

Delivered with the candour, positivity and charm that have made him an acclaimed international touring success, join Harry as he delves into his sexual past, live on stage: The good, the bad and everything in between. This is a show for anyone who’s wondered why they want what they want.

“Clayton-Wright has complete control over the room’s mood. Achingly funny, filthy and tender.” The Guardian ★★★★

“Extraordinary. An exuberant, propulsive and often hilarious hour.” The Scotsman ★★★★

“Clayton-Wright nails a serious, prescient point. LGBT+ education could be considered another form of suicide prevention” The Stage ★★★★

“Incredibly candid, funny and moving. Utter filth. Come, and come again.” The List ★★★★
