DIGS by Theatre with Legs

Rats. Rent. Machines. Debt.
Souls. Souls. Our souls for let.
Let go man. Go on. Get out.

Your notice is up.

Trapped in overdrafts, approaching 30 and sharing living space, Theatre With Legs regularly find themselves too anxious to go and sit in their own front room. Dancing to 70s pop and swinging sledgehammers, they've decided to look through the grime, through the grief, through the wall. Yes. Theatre with Legs need to talk to you about shared living, love and loneliness.

DIGS is a devised performance piece made by Jess Murrain and Lucy Bairstow that asks questions about generation rent, the housing crisis and human behaviour in the public and private space.

'Channeling the domestic bite of Victoria Wood... the linguistic playfulness of Caryl Churchill. In its very best moments, the weird rituals of shared living, where something as basic as drying clothes can be either calamitous or cathartic, take on a sublime absurdity.'
The Upcoming

'Incredibly funny'
A Younger Theatre

Theatre with Legs are Jess Murrain and Lucy Bairstow. Based in London and Bradford, their process is devised and experimental. Combining dark comedy, physical storytelling, live music and spoken word, their work is playful, political, queer, (dyslexic) and inherently live.

Previous work includes: Maybe I Should Freeze my Eggs (Brainchild Festival, Illuminate Festival at New Wimbledon Studio & Camden Fringe), Cold Feet (Roundhouse), Dating Blues (Bussey Building).

This show is part of our Spring Season and can be found in our brand new brochure which is available here!
