Fringe favourites 21Common return for a dance spectacular mashing karaoke carnage and feats of physical endurance with chucking out time at the Grand Ole Oprey. Using tropes of Western movies, it explores how poverty and violence shape a man.

This is a deep and dirty dive into a family circle that more often resembles a ring of fire. Part saloon (there’s crooner country classics), speakeasy (brush/scuffing danceathons) and bare knuckle boxing ring (it’s going to kick off`), join us in our Wild West sitting room with the ones who spit and the ones born to fight.


Notes: Loud music, references to domestic violence throughout, contains distressing or potentially triggering themes, scenes of violence, scenes of a sexual nature, strobe lighting, strong language/swearing.
