Andy Jordan

Carl Djerassi’s new play Phallacy will arrive at the King’s Head on Wednesday 18th May 2005. Andy Jordan directs this funny, touching and insightful play which cleverly combines the thought-provoking debate between art and science with Carl Djerassi’s genuine gift for comedy. When discussion over a statue starts, love, lust, ego and revenge abound in this unusual, light and enjoyable play. With its pacy dialogue, fun and intelligent set, neat plot and breath-baiting denouement, Phallacy is a must for those who know Djerassi’s other plays (such as Three on a Couch) or those new to his witty writing. Part detective story, part satire of academic infighting, Phallacy is sure to humour, stimulate and entertain.

Redshift Productions is proud to present the American Premiere of Phallacy, by award-winning scientist and writer Carl Djerassi.

Phallacy pits a top art historian in a world famous museum against a renowned professor of chemistry. Between them stands the museums prized possession, a revered classical statue thought to be a Roman original...and he just proved it to be a 16th century cast. As personal rivalries and professional reputations clash, how far will each go to prove the other wrong?
