We’re really sorry to announce that, due to transport issues and the ongoing train strikes, our performances of Chores won’t be going ahead tomorrow.

Our Box Office team will be in touch today if you’ve already bought tickets.

is the story of a brother and sister playing in their messy bedroom. Suddenly, their mother's alarming screams rattle the kids 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!

Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming your way. The two excitable kids, 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.

Chores was created 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.
