Penetrator is written by Antony Neilson and directed by Kathleen Akerley. Max just got dumped. So, he recruits his best friend, Alan, for a stretch of card playin', dope smokin', and talkn' shit 'bout chicks. Two guys never lived better. Till the doorbell rings. It's Stiffy, a friend from Max's childhood. Stiff's AWOL, needing somewhere to go, and rambling about being locked in a dark room, sexually tortured by Penetrators. So much for better living.
