This Really Is Too Much

Thu 3rd – Sun 27th Aug 2017


“Outlandish, bold, highly entertaining and slickly choreographed theatre ”





Gracefool Collective


Raucous, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Fringe debutants Gracefool Collective deliver a genre-busting show that reveals the downright absurd realities of life as a three-dimensional, high definition, water-drinking, salad-eating, moisturising W.O.M.A.N. in modern society.

'Gleefully compelling' (Exeunt), slickly choreographed and dripping with feminist charm and anarchic wit, This Really Is Too Much combines dance, dark comedy and theatre. They delve deeply into a world of farcical stereotypes and preposterous power struggles, wrestling with gender, identity and social convention along the way.

After (almost) 100 years of women’s suffrage in Britain how far have we really come since then?

This Really Is Too Much is an outlandish, thought-provoking and wildly entertaining medley of absurd political speeches, talent contests, job interviews and box ticking. Kate Cox, Sofia Edstrand, Rachel Fullegar and Rebecca Holmberg fight themselves, each other and society’s expectations to be individual, political, beautiful, popular and in control.

’A joy to watch. Gracefool Collective has energy and promise’ Exeunt
