A rugby ball’s soft, a hockey stick’s hard, what does that make me?’ – Boy, 12
Hello, we’re Ell and Mary.
We’re bisexuals but we’re a bit bummed out by boys. So we made a show about them.
We asked trans-men, cis-men, and masculine presenting people aged 8 to 102 about what makes them hard. This is a show about what we learnt: about strength, fitting in, feeling yourself, and arseholes.
Through singing, dancing, and f*cking around in crap drag, Ell and Mary write a love letter to masculinity which they are forever tearing up and taping back together again.
We cannot wait to have our favourite theatre makers and honest conversationalists Mary & Ell back in the field for a third year. The inimitable HOTTER Project are dedicated to creating radically honest and silly work, aiming to speak to and platform the voices of those we don’t normally hear. In lockdown they turned their joy, irreverence and innate hilariousness to podcasting, while you’re waiting check out their epic queer adventure quest, Lem n Ginge: The Princess of Kakos.
