Yorkshire in 1687: a company of flea-bitten actors try and fail to live up to their on-stagepersonas. A bawd, a hopeless romantic and a pus-filled buffoon fight impressively for yourattention. A raucous, surreal comedy about desire, the struggle for freedom and queer love.
Using a blend of physical theatre and Restoration theatrical flourishes, award-winning Dirty Corset encapsulates the essence of the 17th century, a sometimes forgotten period, in all of its disgusting glory.
