The One is writer Vicky Jones' debut play and takes a startling yet witty view at some of the taboo subjects regarding sex. The play revolves around a couple who have been in a relationship for 10 years and the discussions they have one night.
Why Watch The One
This debut play has been called astonishing and also blithe for its blatant disregard for the taboos surrounding sex and rape. Vicky Jones has created an hour-long epic experience that discusses opinions on stage that are hilariously contrasted by the carefree manner in which they are stated. The play starts off with the accusations of rape taking an unexpected turn, and things only get wilder from there.
The One is about a couple relaxing on a Saturday night, with the man, Harry, treating his partner, Jo, to some casual sex on the couch as she watches TV and munches on snacks. As the couple engages in more sex that progressively gets more violent, the play transparently examines each of their perspectives in a boldly entertaining and inspiring way.

“It’s often painfully funny, but can seem blithe about smashing taboos.”
-Evening Standard UK
“The play shows conventional gender stereotypes the door as swiftly as it blurs the boundaries between frank, edgy dialogue and biting wit.”
