Circuit’ is a multi-playwright project by the new theatre collective by The Oligarchs. Comprising of a series of six intersecting monologues set in a gym. The piece takes six characters – a disparate collection of gym junkies, first timers and posers – to interrogate why we repeat certain behaviours again and again (….and again and again).
Support this initiative means supporting the artists and they and The Oligarchs believe in valuing their creative talents to make this event as successful as possible.
This project runs from the 1st May through to the 15th May from Wednesdays to Sundays
