Gavin Roach presents the Australian premiere of Sauna Boy by Dan Ireland-Reeves – which will play The Motley Bauhaus: 29 January – 3 February, as part of the 2024 Midsumma Festival, before playing Perth’s Fringe World Festival and Adelaide Fringe in February.
Welcome to West End Sauna… A place where men from all walks of life come to relax, socialise and most importantly… f*ck!
Dan works at one of the UK’s most successful and infamous gay saunas. Join Dan as he navigates a hidden world of lust, friendship and unorthodox working relationships.
From multi-award-winning writer/performer, Dan Ireland-Reeves, comes a semi-autobiographical look behind the curtain of one of the world’s most secretive and seductive industries.
Pulsing with frenetic energy and laced with sexual tension; Sauna Boy is guaranteed to touch you in more ways than one.
