The legal trouble surrounding Tim Fountain’s controversial one-man Edinburgh hit, Sex Addict, doesn’t seem to have hurt its transfer potential (See The Goss, 16 Aug 2004). Royal Court artistic director Ian Rickson hopes to bring the show into Sloane Square’s Upstairs venue in early 2005. Assuming there’s no further argy with Gaydar, one assumes. The execs at the gay matchmaking website threatened to sue over breach of confidentiality when, as part of the show, Fountain invited audiences to choose his sexual partner for the night. The author-turned-performer later admitted that it was a scam, in which the prospective partners were invented and played by a stooge.
