Dickless – Play
Performances of Dickless open at the Know Theatre open January 27th
The Know Theatre of Cincinnati prepares to break the winter blues with showings of the musical Dickless. Dickless is the fourth production of the 25th season at Know Theatre, written by Aisha Josiah and directed by Brant Russell. Depicting the seedy underbelly of a small English town, Dickless is a lightning-fast whirlwind through one single violent night.
With Saff’s best friend slandered, Oli blackmailed, and Smith scrambling to pay a debt, all set out for revenge. Ride along with Saff and Oli in a rabbit hole down revenge, which proves wilder and bloodier than first imagined. Dickless will keep audiences excited as this story upends social mores, gender expectations, and small-town life.
