Dates for your Diary - Acrobatic Family Comedy Show Chores Comes to Storyhouse This Summer

Following on from two sold out seasons at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes in 2018, Chores is coming back to the UK for a new tour which includes two shows at Storyhouse in Chester.

Chores is a comedy circus show from Australia, which tells the story of two brothers who have to clean up their messy room so that they can ride their bicycles. Featuring a storyline that many families can relate to, this show is packed with cool stunts, acrobatic flips, unicycles, juggling - and not forgetting the infamous toilet paper guns.

Last year, Chores was proud to win several awards which included the Audience Choice Award at Prague Fringe; a nomination for Best Children's Show at Perth Fringe; and the Weekly Winner Award for Best Kids Show at Adelaide Fringe.

Chores is brought to you by Hoopla Clique performers Julian Roberts and Morgan Wilson. These two talented theatre clowns redefine slapstick humour and showcase teamwork, trust and co-operation. The physical comedy is suitable for diverse audiences as it requires little language and speaks to young and old alike. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, this is a show that's made for children, but there is plenty of hilarity to amuse parents and families too!

Julian is a natural on stage, having started training as an acrobat and a clown since he was just 14. His stage partner Morgan is a cheeky muppet, who is full of surprises.

Chores performer Julian Roberts commented: "Chores is the return to the good old days of pure entertainment, where bringing joy is priority number one. Operating at an extremely high LPM (Laughs Per Minute), we love it when parents enjoy the show as much as kids do!"

Chores comes to Storyhouse on Saturday 15th June, with performances at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are on sale now, priced at £10 for adults and £8 for children. The show is suitable for youngsters aged two upwards.
