Please Hold Poster.png

Please Hold went to Brighton Fringe 2022! We performed at Rotunda Theatre: Bubble on the 17th and 18th of May at 9pm, with a night of comic horror, sex gags and feminist fun.

Please Hold is a devised, satirical comedy-horror show centred around a ready-to-please sex doll helpline.


A genius inventor, with a burning desire for love, is introduced when he conceives his own ideal, hyper-feminine and hyper-sexual sex machine: Precious. The inventor's fantasy shatters as his own creation quickly gains sentience and discovers her sexual independence. Their worlds collapse as their conflict of interest ends in a dangerous altercation.


With original songs and lots of sex gags, the show is underpinned by a critique of man's desire, and the objectification of women's bodies in our patriarchal, consumerist culture.​
