Prurience­ makes its US debut at Works & Process at the Guggenheim following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London.


Created by British writer and performer Christopher Green after interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, Prurience is experiential entertainment that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Audiences are invited to attend a fictional self-help group and, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality, consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs.


Prurience is codirected by Green and Holly Race Roughan, with sound design by Benjamin Grant.

Please note this show contains explicit sexual references, discusses suicide, and may feature other sensitive content.

Praise for Prurience

The Times (UK): “A disorientating, provocative experience. . . . Theatrically the piece is audacious, springing a series of head-spinning surprises. This is the kind of art that leaves its mark on you. Unnerving, and uncomfortably compelling.”


Finalist, TBC Award (for productions that defy traditional categories), The Offies (The Off West End Theatre Awards), London
