20 – 23 September 2018

Supported by a raucous chorus of original music by Louise Mothersole, Rachel Mars and four belting female singers come at you with a hilarious, dark show about the hidden workings of one of our uglier emotions. OUR CARNAL HEARTS is a gleeful, thrilling and murky celebration of envy, competitive spirits and all the times we fuck each other over. A combination of performance, comedy, a singing lesson and a conjuring ritual, the show feels like five women have rocked up in your town, inviting you to a beautiful and boisterous theatrical ceremony.

OUR CARNAL HEARTS is a celebration of envy, a joyous call for everyone we’ve ever wanted to be and everything we’ve ever wanted to own. A place to whoop at our own fragility and delight against our better nature. A toast to our competitive spirits and a rumbling dance for the ugly gutter-tramping parts of our souls. A show that seeks to prove that envy makes us better. That politicians are right: that its spirit runs through our hearts, lymph systems and bowels and it’s glorious and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
