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.
