It's the UN's Genital Action Week, where the world's population is encouraged to reach out and explore sexually. Seven disparate individuals converge upon a west end hotel for a fatuous awards ceremony. There is the Lucasian professor of maths who has been commissioned to present a TV programme which explains Shcrodinger's Cat to the imbecilic masses. There's a thirty five year old man who has dumped his wife and kids for a younger, better equipped model. There's a feckless, arrant waiter called Claudio who is half way through his attempts to sleep with 700 women in one year. There's the foreign secretary, who may or may not be a vampire. There's a pathologist who has discovered that hospital superbugs are caused by bad television programmes. There's a fourteen-year-old pop singer, Stella Z and her dubious father. And there's the beautiful Sahira Shah who is, once again, a suicide bomber. But a GOOD one. What's it about? Modern notions of love and sex, informed by evolutionary psychology. Rootlessness and serial monogamy. Bad TV, stupidity and delusion.
