A variety show, with very little variety.
Presented by FIGS IN WIGS
You’re so vain you probably think this show is about you. But it’s actually about Figs in Wigs - the lowbrow answer to avant-garde. Show Off delves deep into our shallow digital existence, examining how social media has bred a new form of narcissism. Masquerading as a variety show this desperately glitzy number continually reinvents itself to satisfy even the most depleted of attention spans.
Nominated for a Total Theatre Award 2014 (Emerging Category) and an Arches Brick Award 2014.
Developed with support from Arts Council England, Escalator East to Edinburgh, Cambridge Junction, METAL, the New Wolsey Theatre and The Marlborough Theatre.
Figs in Wigs are Alice Roots, Rachel Gammon, Rachel Porter, Sarah Moore and Suzanna Hurst
A totally brilliant array of very talented, funny, & innovative "girls"- full of variety, witty & clever - highly entertaining....brimming full of one liners, silliness, bizarre antics....they deserve success!
