Content Advisory

Brick Shithouse deals directly with themes of interpersonal violence, self-harm, domestic abuse, substance abuse, dubious consent in sexual situations, and explicit language.


A brash, bare-knuckle ensemble performance wrestling with themes of cyclical poverty, self-destruction, weird and queer sexuality, and participatory exploitation: Brick Shithouse gets up close and personal with seven capricious “best friends” as they livestream their makeshift fight club to earn some extra cash.

As a new work in progress, Brick Shithouse is being actively developed by playwright Ashleigh Hicks with collaborating artists in preparation for a premiere production with Found Festival 2024. This summer, get a sneak peek at the earliest stages of new play development with this special progress presentation.

In collaboration with: Sarah J Culkin, Evan Medd, and Even Gilchrist
Featuring: Jasmine Hopfe, Ryan Blair, Alexander Ariate, Sophie May Healey, Mohamed Ahmed, Erin Pettifor, and Moses Kouyaté
