Cult cabaret duo and leading lights of the UK’s alternative performance scene Bourgeois & Maurice, otherwise known as George Heyworth and Liv Morris, continue HOME’s spring 2020 theatre season with the world premiere production of Insane Animals, which runs Friday 28 February – Saturday 14 March 2020.

The show features a cast of eight high-energy low-brow actor-musician misfits under the direction of Philip McMahon, who has just been named as Creative Director for Ireland’s entry in the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, to be staged in Rotterdam in May.

Insane Animals is an outrageous larger-than-life time-travelling musical comedy in which two hyper-glam aliens arrive from a faraway galaxy to rescue present-day earth from impending political, environmental, and social doom. This ‘epic joyride from the dawn of civilisation to the sequinned near future’ sees Bourgeois & Maurice on hand to help the human race live forever!

Known for their glamorous and satirical double act, Bourgeois & Maurice are writing for the first time for a large cast, tackling bigger themes, and with a full band. It also marks their first time to actually rehearse a show!
