Description

Calvin is going to revolutionise his life. Escape his abusive boyfriend, detonate his inner sex bomb, see (and shag) the world! Now he’s found his partner in crime in Wilf, a rusty Volkswagen Polo. Together they hit the road on a wild ride of greasy takeaways, graveyard orgies and banging 80s power ballads – ending up somewhere they never imagined they’d go… This riotous, heartfelt play takes audiences on a hilarious and unapologetic ride through Scotland as Calvin and Wilf attempt to escape loneliness, cope with mental illness and learn to love themselves, with the help of one another.
