Skipping between an 18th century Molly house and a group of men planning a raunchy party in 21st century Shoreditch, Mother Clap’s Molly House is a riotous celebration of the diversity of human sexuality, and a comment on the commodification of sex and love.
Performed by Mountview’s Third Year BA Performance – Musical Theatre students.
The play was first performed at the National’s Lyttleton Theatre on the 4th September 2001 and at the Aldwych Theatre on the 8th February 2002. The play was commissioned and presented in a workshop production by the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in February 2000.
