Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming your way.
‘If you can measure the success of a children’s show by its ability to light up the faces of rain-drenched toddlers, this show has no room for improvement.’ - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
Chores is the story of two typical young rascal boys playing in their messy bedroom. Suddenly, their mother's alarming screams rattle the boys back in to acrobatic action.
A generous serve of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt at cleaning their room and doing their chores. This mess of chaos and comedy concludes with a last-minute cleaning spree. The parents are kept at bay and the rewards come flooding in!
These two excitable brothers, are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do…
With highlights of skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, the audience will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done!
‘They immediately launch into a series of entertaining circus skills and slapstick that keeps the children cheering and the adults chuckling. From giant balls to tiny Cyr wheels, this is an inventive show that’s perfectly crafted for a young audience.’ - Broadway Baby
Chores is brought to you by Julian Roberts from Hoopla Clique. With over 15 years’ experience, the exuberant talent of this clown redefines slapstick humour and showcases the true value of tenacity, teamwork, trust and cooperation through physical theatre.
