Weinberger Brings More Sexual Misery to ArtsDate: 15 February 2011
Wolfgang Weinberger’s one-man “sexicological comedy” show A Guide to Sexual Misery is returning to the Arts Theatre for ten performances only between 4 March and 2 April 2011.
A Guide to Sexual Misery was created by Austrian therapist Bernhard Ludwig as therapy for recovering heart attack patients, who wanted to know how long before they could start having sex again. The project evolved into a hit comedy in Austria, selling out the 2,500-seat Vienna Concert Hall.
Part lecture, part comedy, part therapy, the stage show is presented by unlikely “sexpert” Wolfgang Weinberger, who seeks to provide answers to burning questions such as “how often should I have sex?”, “what do women really want?” and “what is an acceptable time between having sex and playing Angry Birds?”.
In the UK, A Guide to Sexual Misery had a run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008. In 2009, it transferred to London, initially running for four months over the summer at the Leicester Square Theatre and then for late nights at the Duchess Theatre over Christmas.
It ran at the Arts in the weekend slot last summer - this time around, it runs at 10pm on 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26 March and 1, 2 April 2011.
