Trevor Lock: Gender Studies – Girl v Boy, PBH’s Free Fringe @ Bannermans (Venue 357) * * *
Boys and girls. We are segregated and, pretty much, pitted against each other in an attempt to decide which gender is best.
It might not be very woke but it is great fun and Trevor, as ever, with a tendency to the tetchy, shoos us through various tests and competitions with the air of a mildly harassed public school science teacher. There are love letters and much sniffing of strangers, some whispering, a bit of drawing, quizzes and quite a lot of lamination, all commented on (rather well, I thought) by Trevor’s two nominated ‘scientists’.
It is fun and funny (there are at least three actual jokes) and may well turn out to be the way forward in identity politics.
Until 25 August.
