Alan Bissett

Playwright, novelist, performer, bletherer.


a5aAndrea Dworkin: radical feminist.  Alan Bissett: man.  One stage.  Bissett plays ‘himself’, telling stories from his own life, with a penis, and Dworkin, one of the most controversial women in history, who has a few things to say to him. Expect laughter, Led Zeppelin, and a live ‘reconditioning’ of a man who’s had it all too easy. Until now.
