Oh! Calcutta! is an avant-garde play written by several British authors, including Samuel Beckett, John Lennon, Edna O’Brien, and created by Kenneth Tynan, which premiered in 1969 in Paris. It is a series of sketches, vignettes, and short plays that explore themes of love, sexuality, and human relationships. The play is notable for its use of full frontal nudity and sexual themes, and it was one of the first plays to feature nude actors on stage. 🪐
