Ell and Mary - Fitter
Through singing, dancing, and f*cking around in crap drag, Ell and Mary write a love letter to masculinity.
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 ex-girlfriends and bisexuals and we’re a bit bummed out by boys.
Three years ago we interviewed women and trans people aged 11 to 97 for our five-star sell-out show HOTTER. We didn’t interview men. We just didn’t want to. Because men are trash, right?
Wrong. Well, sometimes wrong. We asked 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.
