Piles of shame spirals stack up around the city. Smash them up. Devised by The Amateur Collective.

Sneaky Little Bugger shines a high voltage mega-light on the judgment, secrecy and silence of shame. A kaleidoscopic concoction of physical and verbatim theatre that mixes live and recorded audio. A show that spirals and devours as it draws on real-life interviews and conversations, myth and memoir.

A dynamic cracking open of this primal and all too pervasive emotion.

Laying face down on a rug, ordering McDonalds delivery twice in one day, watching porn, that disastrous first date. A torrent of familiar stories unfold in a sound-scape of the everyday as we speak what hates being spoken.
