Gym Party

Gym Party

Made in China

A razor sharp and darkly comic exploration of our universal desire to win.

Three intrepid contestants compete in a series of games, from the hilariously stupid to the arbitrary and downright heartbreaking. Chris, Jess and Ira fearlessly do whatever it takes to win – to please you, the audience. They are also eager to share their stories, perspectives and awkward dances in between.

Anarchic, thoughtful and ultimately moving, Gym Party speaks to anyone who frets about the state of the world and how we treat each other – then gets distracted by a dumb celebrity tweet.

“One marvellously unusual hour… Gym Party finds the sweet spot between pure play, sociopolitical satire and personal confession… sharp, silly and surprisingly tender” **** The Times

And now for some Marshmallows:

Made in China is the collaborative work of Tim Cowbury and Jessica Latowicki. They make theatre that playfully explores the paradoxes of modern identity, crossing the borders between playwriting and performance art. ‘Not since Forced Entertainment burst on to the scene almost 30 years ago has a company arrived with such a fully formed and distinctive voice’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
