Malta Porn The Musical

Porn, Malta.Cheekily and controversially titled, Porn is a musical (with some great comedic elements) by Maltese writer Malcolm Galea and musicians Kris Spieri and Boris Cezek, who are collectively known as Indiskarf.

Malta Porn was Indiskarf’s first production, and it debuted in March 2009 at the Centre of the Mediterranean Institute Theatre Programme (MITP) in Valletta.

The story is centred on a young man called Stefan Bugeja who has grown up on the outwardly conservative island of Malta.

Stefan has a fiancée and when she reveals herself as a loose and somewhat immoral woman, Stefan feels his life has been destroyed and decides to emigrate to the USA, in search of a happier life. Little does he know what he’s about to let himself in for!

Once in America, Stefan gets involved with some friends who are embroiled in the adult-entertainment business, and gets absorbed in the industry himself. Songs in the musical include “Naked on a Sunday”, “Everyone in Malta is Related”, “ So Young and yet so Slutty “, “The Kind of Girl I am” and “The Song where Everyone Bitches”!

During 2009, after the performance in Valletta, Porn the Musical was staged at Argotti Gardens in July for a week’s run. In August 2009, a 75 minute version of the musical was performed for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the George IVth Theatre. This is the first time that a Maltese musical has been shown for a full month at this world-renowned event. Choreographed by Emma Loftus and narrated by screenwriter Malcolm Galea, the cast at the festival included Max Dingli as the lead character, Louis Cassar as sleazy Director Martin Scoresleazy, Sarah Naudi as porn star Sanddy, David Ellul as the studio stud Dr Johnny Long, Eliza Borg as Stefan’s ex-finacee Jade and Toni Attard as the Miscellaneous Man.

Malta Porn The Musical is a laugh a minute and definitely works around an adult theme – however, there is no actual porn in the show, apart from it being the subject of the entire plot!
