THE BROGAN DAVISON SHOW (2019)
The Brogan Davison Show is a solo stand-up performance that plays with the vulnerable relationship between a performer and their audience. Standing alone onstage Brogan Davison - a socially awkward, mentally-fragile English woman - reveals her more unflattering sides in a perhaps desperate attempt to give the performance of a lifetime. As hilarious as it is sincere, this event is a grandiose, naive and absurd attempt of a lonely human to connect to world and the people within it.
The Brogan Davison Show reacts to whichever environment it finds itself in, be it a theatre, someone’s home, the middle of a street, a stadium or alone in a forest. Guests can expect a brutally raw performance full of love, rage, bravery and stupidity.
