Talk dirty to me ...


Like theatre? Don't mind a bit of dirty talk? Love to laugh?
You'll probably get a laugh out of 51 Shades of Maggie Muff, a naughty one-woman play, which is set to ruffle Brisbane's feathers from May 1.
Starring Sydney actor/comedian Nikki Britton as the lusty, sex-loving Maggie Muff, the play is now at Brisbane's Twelfth Night Theatre for a strictly limited season.
It's not for the prudish or faint-hearted. 51 Shades of Maggie Muff is a spoof play of the Shades of Grey novels, complete with four-letter words and detailed descriptions of sexual acts.
Described as 'funnier, sexier and much ruder than Shirley Valentinte', 51 Shades of Maggie Muff follows a streetwise young woman, looking for love in all the wrong places.
The show sold out theatres in Scotland, Ireland and the UK, 51 Shades of Maggie Muff, while the Australian production delighted fans in Perth in late 2013.
Directed by Terence O’Connell and presented by Simon Bryce and Andrew Guild who brought the record breaking Busting Out! to Australia, Nikki Britton makes it impossible not to fall in love with well-intentioned Maggie.

The bubbly, over-the-top actress takes the audience on an erotic journey detailing the ins and outs - pun intended - of Maggie’s torrid and one-of-a-kind love affair with the elusive “Mr Big”, who sounds like a bit of a dickhead really. 
Her captivating performance draws laughter, empathy and shocked faces the whole way through.
Penned by Irish writer and single mum, Leesa Harker, Maggie Muff’s journey began as a one-chapter, comedic, erotic novel circulated on Facebook. Within a few days however, it had a following of 15,000! 
From this online exposure, Maggie’s adventure eventually became a popular novel and from there, the runaway stage sensation 51 Shades of Maggie Muff was born.
This racy Australian production also teaches lessons about life and love as audiences come to realise that in fact, there is a little bit of Maggie Muff in all of us. 
The West Australian's reviewer David Zampatti described the Perth show as 'spectacularly obscene', but also 'filthy, and touching, fun'.
A present for the woman who has everything perhaps?
Best of all, Maid In Australia has three double passes for this Saturday night's show (May 3, 2013).
