A Company of Six
'Please Hold' is a devised, satirical comedy-horror show centered 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.
'Please Hold' has been performed in The Showroom, Chichester, for four nights in The Grub and Liquor at Tunbridge Wells Fringe Festival 2021 (including one sold out show!) and 2 nights at the Rotunda Theatre, Brighton for Brighton Fringe 2022!
