The link is useless if you don't have a Facebook to log in to, like myself.
I personally don't think anyone would put it on in the West End.  The writer is up-and-coming, but is yet to have a big hit. It is also very short and a small-scale production with no real commercial interest. Its production and the writing are more Fringe than West End. It has a no-name cast and a Fringe director.
I also think it is overrated; interesting and well performed yet lacking substance. It has the feel of an inexperienced writer's work.
It's also spelled 'Fanny and Faggot'.

Thanks for the quick reply. Is creepy - is almost as if i wrote that myself circa Feb 07.

It's actually true. Apologies for doubting you, but it's coming to Trafalgar Studios 2 for the month of October.
It's being presented with Jack Thorne's monologue, 'Stacy', which ran at a different theatre simultaneous to Fanny and Faggot's London run earlier this year.
This West End run seems a whole lot more plausible now that I know it'll be in an intimate space.

No need to apologise - i was doubting too! Can't believe it's playing at the TS2 as a double bill - reminds you what eye rolling was invented for
