DIGS (Theatre With Legs)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

‘DIGS’ is a darkly funny look at shared living and the space we take up in our own homes. Theatre with Legs gives us an insight into the good and bad elements of house sharing, from the perspective of the ‘Rent Generation’. With musical interludes and beautifully physical, visual explorations, this hour-long show offers a frank look at what it means to live with other people, and how sharing a space can all too often become sharing a life. The theatre space was used to its full potential, whilst still mimicking that of a traditional ‘living space’. Two brilliant performances bind the show together, the scope of the characters allowing both actors to show their capabilities as versatile, endearing performers.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
