Description

Show up, clock in, get in formation and be ready to claim time and a half because this entertainment will cost you – and our preferred method of payment is sweat. Sweatshop gathers a labour force of your favourite Briefs Factory boys, under the steely stewardship of host Tash York, leading a core production line of workers into overtime. Manufacturing a conveyor belt of high-quality circus treats, cultivated by a warehouse of sweaty, motivated mischief-makers gunning for employee of the month. You want fun? This is the factory of fun!

Saw this tonight. What a show! Funny, creative, impressive and at points slightly nauseating. How anyone can throw themselves around in a couple of straps suspended from the ceiling is amazing enough but to do it whilst wearing thigh high stiletto boots and a massive blonde wig is jaw dropping. Go see this outrageous fabulous group of talented performers. It’s a riot.
