Synopsis

WANTED: Discerning individuals with excellent moral compasses.

 

Do you know right from wrong? Good from bad? Well, of course you do. Look at you! You recycle. You’ve got a great taste in music. You go on protest marches. You work hard, and play harder. You certainly aren’t a racist. And you’re exactly the kind of audience member we’re looking for.

 

You are invited to the ultimate test of brains, brawn, and brilliance. Over a series of rounds developed by Accredited Gameshow Experts, our three contestants will battle it out to win the title of “Most Admirable Person”. Their friends and families certainly think they’re admirable. The real question is, DO YOU?

 

Join our wonderful studio audience to cheer, clap, and drag your favourite competitor over the finish line. There’s everything to play for… and everything to lose.

 

Dirty Rascals are delighted to bring you a magical evening of fun, games, and life-altering ethical perplexities. This is gameshow entertainment as you’ve never seen it before.

PRESS AND REVIEWS

One of The Stage's Top 10 Theatre Shows To See at Brighton Fringe 2018

★★★★ "Gameshow comedy that cleverly dissects public shaming in the internet age… its slick delivery and conciseness of idea is more than highly admirable" - The Stage

★★★★ "A multi-layered, intelligently devised study of human nature… It’ll undoubtedly stick with me for a long time to come" - Spy In The Stalls

★★★★ "Overall, it's a multi-layered, clever piece about what we as society are completely breaking people down, for them to think they might get something out of it. I want to see more theatre like this... Voicemag

Synopsis

A first-class evening of whimsical games, interactive performance and urgent conversation.

 

Join Dirty Rascals for the experience that places you in the cockpit. There are no right answers and this is not a test.

 

Every month, we will test a different theme or idea. We can’t promise that the ride will always be easy or comfortable, but it will be honest, it will be bold and it will be without judgement. Each evening will end with time for free and open discussion.

 

Passengers, please fasten your seat-belts.

 

Turbulence is a “pay-what-you-can” evening.

It was the second time Dad made your cheesecake that my heart sheared in two

Synopsis

There were whole weekends spent watching you play Playstation. There were trips to Molineux and back.

Time is precious – you must call your parents. But who do you really wanna talk to? And what will you say?

But all you can say is “Hey Google, what do you want to do today?”

So you put your own mask on before helping others.

And over your shoulder, always, there’s Exodus 10:15

 

Part interactive theatre, part audio-visual tour of a childhood, all catharsis.

 

Three texts from my best friend after the show:

My heart

It was a strange honour to see it

Thanks for making it

The Arches as part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe

Synopsis

Six performers stand on stage. They are trying to tell you the story of Kafka’s A Hunger Artist. But they can't do it. At least, not properly.

 

Something is missing in their re-telling but it's also not clear what that thing is. In their attempts to make sense of who the Hunger Artist was, they offer something of themselves – an honest and naked expression of their own anxieties, fears and internal conflicts. They can't do it alone either - they're going to need help from their adoring audience...

 

The Hunger Artist was a work-in-progress project that developed into I Want You to Admire Me/But You Shouldn't.

'Too many greeblies in the pool today. I just wanted some quiet y'know, and peace, some good old quiet and peace. Not my lucky day though is it? Greeblies everywhere.'

"It’s a show with true heart. Dirty Rascals know how to make unique theatre, and are definitely a company to keep an eye on." - A Younger Theatre

Synopsis

A thoroughly human play about loneliness and desire, Dirty Rascals' debut production Of Nymphs and Men tells of story of two people struggling to fit their ideas of the "perfect" life with the reality of living.

 

Alex used to be a dreamer, but her heart's just been broken and the cracks are running a bit too deep. Andrew used to be a dreamer too, but reality hits back hard and he's tired of rolling with the punches. When you can't fight, what's left but to run?

 

In a remote wood, two very different paths cross for the first time. As Andrew and Alex help each other to pick up the pieces, they discover a hunger for lives they've never led. Slowly, the morning mist rolls in and myths begin to take root in the forest glade...
