Description

This Sales Pitch is the only way forward. We’re talking fiscal ascendance. Forget timeshare. Forget PPI. Forget your salacious uncle’s get-rich-quick schemes. Three Experts from the Extremely Online West Coast of America offer the investment talk of a lifetime. A darkly comic piece of theatre presented as an investment seminar. Drawing influence from social media and corporate advertising, Sales Pitch sets a hapless audience against three aggressively American salesmen and a relentless entourage of outlandish surprises. For Spare the Rod: 'Wet-your-pants funny' (TwoLassesInLondonCom.WordPress.com, 2018). 'A fast-paced, insane rollercoaster ride filled with nutty antics and outrageous shenanigans' (TheSpyInTheStalls.com, 2018).

A really funny and provocative show - well written with performances that were endearing and horrifying by turn. The cast were immensely engaging and entertaining and I can genuinely say I was on the edge of my seat by the end. George Abbot (dead ringer for the young Steve Buscemi) gave a gut wrenching swan song at the end of the show - ripping into popular culture and ensuring his audience left the theatre feeling entertained and uncomfortable in equal measure. A really interesting and accomplished show.

An extraordinary piece of work that will leave you shocked, amused, impressed, baffled, reeling. Expect the unexpected and prepare for the bizarre. A company thriving in dynamic energy, attack, physical velocity and professional wit and pace. Mind-blowing themes and in your face audacity.
