F**k my life. This is a saying that us millennials say almost daily. Whether it’s when we spill coffee all over our laptops, or when we think our phone has been charging over night when it really hasn’t (worst feeling ever) #FML.

There are plenty of other moments in life when we scream this familiar saying and F**K MY LIFE The Show brings these to light.

Hold up, because this isn’t a show that only explores our lowest moments in life. It uses a combination of circus, physical theatre, original music and sound effects, to add to the reality of numerous relatable situations.

The show opens with a unique introduction, telling the audience a little bit about the four performers, how to help promote the show, and what it is generally all about.

The show is REAL and deals with REAL situations.

For example, it shows us 10 reasons why we cry in the shower. Wow I’ve never seen something more relatable in my life. Whether it’s because we think no one will hear us, or because our housemate hasn’t replaced the empty shampoo bottle, we’ve all done it! And to make it even more interesting, with every reason comes a new acrobatic trick.

Another segment revolves around a high school dance. One of the performers is in a wheelchair and they use this scenario to show how he feels when it comes to relationships. Being immobile, he feels as if no one wants to be with him and is left dancing on his own. Then suddenly, a slow rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody plays as he does moving tricks with a hoola-hoop.

The show gives you a whole mix of emotions, dealing with both light-hearted and hard-hitting issues, whilst using physical theatre and circus tricks to tell the story.

Quick! You better hurry now because there are only four shows left for the year! So, go and grab your tickets NOW.
