“Figs in Wigs prove they are the smartest girls in town…” – The Guardian

“Thank God for Figs in Wigs.” – Exeunt

“Often Onstage was a pleasure, it’s alive, it’s clever, direct and deep, poetic and deliciously shallow at the same time. Theatre is NOT a dying art form.” DRAFF

“This is anti-theatre of the highest order: ante-theatre, even.” Whats On Stage



Often Onstage is an offbeat facetious romp that explores the ins and outs of the stage through the medium of dance. With one step forward and two hundred steps back this choreographic exercise in comings and goings plays with a myriad of ways to enter and exit the stage, unearthing dormant anxieties about life choices along the way.

With curtain calls, blood baths and exits pursued by bears, Often Onstage revels in the absurdity of theatrical traditions with the straightest of faces. There’ll be nods to the new, alongside bows to the Bard, as well as an underlying sense of doom that theatre is a dying art form. What if the only thing keeping you going are inspirational quotes and a subsidised income from your side project as a Backstreet Boys tribute act? It’s only a matter of time before we sell out, and we don’t mean tickets…
