Sometimes we fail and pretend it never happened. These losers don’t have that option. Winning is fun but watching people fail is even funnier, so join a bunch of no-hopers as they square up against the shame monsters they’ve hidden away in a bid to win the illusive Try-Hard trophy. A fast-paced and brutally honest new show about the things we just can’t do. Devised by the company with Fringe First and Offie Award-winner Katie Bonna (All the Things I Lied About, Dirty Great Love Story) as part of the University of Worcester MTheatre season.
