‘5 Guys Chillin’ brings the highs and lows of chemsex to the stage

By Josh Lee

Peter Darney’s award-winning 5 Guys Chillin’ dives into the hedonistic world of chillouts.

The verbatim drama uses direct quotes from real life situations to paint a truthful – sometimes searingly so – portrayal of gay sex and drugs, providing a refreshingly honest window into the world of jock straps and GHB.

The show has been created from over 50 hours of anonymous interviews from Grindr, with Darney bringing a huge variety of experience into one gripping session, which has already had successful runs in both New York and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The show runs from October 15 – November 5 at The King’s Head Theatre in Islington, London. Get tickets for this incredible show here.
