Synopsis

18–20 July 2024

Girl meets boy. Girl hates boy. Girl f**s boy 44 times. World collapses.

Celina is a journalist stuck writing clickbait for a lifestyle blog. It falls to her to road test a new book, The 44 Sex Acts That Will Change Your Life. All she has to do is experience 44 different kinds of sex, across the full spectrum of kink, by Friday. The problem is she needs a partner and the only person available is her nemesis, brooding animal activist and office mail boy, Alab Delusa.

Sworn enemies, they now have one week to explore the endlessly undulating terrain of sex, from BDSM to role-play, from polyamory to exhibitionism. And with no time to recover. Can all this extra friction between them strike real sparks? From the razor-sharp quill of David Finnigan (Kill Climate Deniers) comes a pressure cooker sex-com about what drives humanity to go all the way toward the end of civilisation as we know it.

Watch 4 hilarious actors go down on their microphones, mangoes, and melons in this slippery and subversive take on a classic radio play. 44 Sex Acts is a response to humanity’s decision to go harder, faster, faster, FASTER! towards the end of the world as we know it.
