Summary:
'The Censor', first performed at London's Finborough Theatre Red Room in 1997, tells a tender tale in graphic scenes, challenging the audience to see beyond the images themselves, to a deeper truth, about interaction, honesty and affection. Shirley Fontaine, director, visionary, pornographer, meets with Frank, a censor whose job it is to decide what cuts would make her latest work acceptable for general release. On the face of it, her film is comprised solely of a litany of sex scenes: but she gradually attempts to make the timid and tentative Frank see the arc of a relationship in her movie, one she believes to be an important record of sex as communication, and, more importantly, a work of art.
