"The comedy of the play is non-stop." – Joy Minter, The Buzz From Sydney
Abby falls for Sol. Sol writes porn with his mother, Mary. Abby’s father, Abe, meets Sol at the launch of their erotica book. Abby shares Abe’s fears of sex, ends it with Sol and dives headfirst into Mary’s book of erotica.
Deeper and deeper into the ‘cliterature’ she goes, her psyche ravished by the sexiest of mermaids. And cowboys. And cave men. But what a frightening resemblance they all have to Mary, Sol and Abe!
Deeper and deeper into herself now, Abby unearths something long overlooked.
Inspired by Nikki Sex, ‘This Is Not Mills and Boon’ takes the most distasteful insinuations of parent/child relationships and transforms them into a fast-paced comedy about sexual autonomy.
