Figs in Wigs

More exciting work coming to The Continental next week!

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 nosedives deep into our shallow digital existence, goggling at 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.


In a selfie-obsessed effort to tick every box five performers reintroduce themselves as comedians, dancers, visual artists, musicians and circus entertainers. After all, nowadays one trick ponies rarely make the cut.

Age recommendation: 12+

Figs in Wigs bring SHOW OFF to The Continental on Wednesday 25th November 2015. Doors open at 8pm.

Tickets are £8 / £7 concessions.
