    Powerhouse’s I LOVE SEX / YOU LOVE SEX borrows two characters from Greek comedies and mythology, Clytemnestra and Lysistrata, as a framework for the conversation around both the politicisation and politick of having a female body, as well as also being queer, femme, neurodiverse and a survivor of sexual trauma. The historical referencing emphasises the timelessness of this intersectional politicised experience for women and explores how we can heal, moving on from surviving to building honest and radical friendships. 

    Appearing in a modern bedroom together with wildly different but resonating contexts, Lysistrata and Clytemnestra are forced to learn how to intentionally love and care for one another, supporting one another through a beautiful story of care, queer love, friendship, and support. The project is focused on moving on from surviving and learning how to thrive, supported, held up, and taught by your own compassion for your new community.

    "Beautifully written and exquisitely performed."
    Reviews Hub [on previous Powerhouse play]
    "Claudia Vyvyan’s script is imbued with a quiet dignity of purpose, and a depth and breadth of poetic lyricism that, at times, leaves one breathless."
    Reviews Hub [on previous Powerhouse play]
    "The central character, performed with immense charisma by a talented and committed Flora MacAngus."
    Time and Leisure Magazine [on previous Powerhouse play]
    "An allegory of self-repair after a violent and cruel rupturing, it is deeply moving."
    Reviews Hub [on previous Powerhouse play]
    "Vyvyan’s concern here is not just surviving, it is thriving. Quite a writer, quite a performer, and quite a gem of a show. Highly recommended."
    Reviews Hub [on previous Powerhouse work]
