Neurotic Erotica


Based on true stories, join controversial author Esme J.K. Quimby (Regan Shrumm), as she reads from her latest novel, 50 Shades of Grief: A Neurotic Erotica. Follow a character study of how one individual’s love of 80s films and repressed queerness turned them into constantly overthinking every sexual act.  

This solo comedy performance is full of cringing humour, bringing levity to the awkwardness that can come with exploring the mysteries of sex as you grow up. 

“A masterclass in subtlety, innuendo, camp, and whip-smart humour
– Sean Guist (Artistic Director, Intrepid Theatre)
Written & Directed by: Regan Shrumm
