Figs in Wigs

Figs in Wigs are an all female, five strong performance company who make work which is a unique mix of theatre, dance and comedy. They use puns, fake fruit and pop culture references to create shows that are refreshingly surreal, absurdly comic and engaging for all ages. For their residency, they plan to research, develop and rehearse a new theatre project called ‘Show Off’. It comments on narcissism within society and the fixation on public image and representation. The five acts will reflect this constant demand for the next best thing, yet suggest that underneath the dressed up re-invention, it’s actually all the same.
