Le Petit Mort, slang for ‘the female orgasm’ in French, is an outrageous comedy about sex, secrets, fate and fetish. It’s awkward when we laugh at something truly awful and it’s delightful when we get joy and emotional truth from something truly outrageous. The Little Death treads the line, like any good comedy about sex, between love and taboo. Often funny, always real and truly moving, Josh Lawson has created a highly original and engaging story.
