What to expect…

A one-woman queer comedy about masculinity, horses, Dr Freud and DIY

A cowboy, a DIY expert and Sigmund Freud walk into a stable…

In this hilarious queer solo show, Eilidh MacAskill bares all to swagger through masculinity, machismo and misogyny in a fully-frontal, yet thoughtful meditation inspired by Freud’s theories of sexuality and how they continue to influence us today.

As Freud would have it, this masculine-identifying lesbian is clearly missing something important. Is trying on a series of macho identities a clear case of penis envy, or is that a load of horseshit? A stripped back show for anyone who likes their psychoanalysis heteronormative and their cowboys in the buff.

“Wonderful edgy gender fun” Kate Bornstein, Gender Outlaw

“A DIY horse whispering of gender identity…incredibly likeable and enjoyable… genuinely thought-provoking” Lewis Church, Exeunt

Eilidh MacAskill is a Glasgow-based live artist creating work for both adults and children with a current focus on gender and queerness.
