"It's just locker room talk"
Foreskin's Lament is our state of the nation play about masculinity. Using contemporary material ranging from the Chiefs ‘stripper scandal’ to Wellington College’s recent online incident, award-winning theatre-makers Eleanor Bishop and Julia Croft and a group of sixteen young people from Auckland take New Zealand's iconic locker room play and ask "what has changed since 1980?" Or more importantly, "what hasn't?"
