An ambitious young man creates and hosts a new activity that combines gambling with sex. For a nice fee, Jimmy Rogers will pit a man and a woman against each other in the battlefield of blackjack and craps. Whoever comes out the winner will have their way with the loser in the bedroom…where almost anything goes.
Tessa has set up a business: a brothel where mature women specialise in offering the 'Girlfriend Experience', a surprisingly caring and sympathetic service.
As the women stoically strive to make a living in a competitive market, their personal lives start to crumble. Will they ever have loving relationships outside work and enjoy being girlfriends themselves?
The Girlfriend Experience continues the verbatim-theatre technique Alecky Blythe developed in Come Out Eli and Cruising. The play is created entirely from conversations recorded inside an actual brothel, edited and replicated on stage in all their uncanny verisimilitude.
'funny, touching and absolutely filthy... a hugely entertaining eye-opener of a show' - Telegraph
'poignant, sometimes disturbing, often riotously funny' - The Times
'These women aren't patronised or made into gargoyles: their sentences are gorgeous. They simply reveal their lives. What more could you want from the theatre?' - Observer
