A close encounter of the fabulous kind

After the runaway success of their last few seasons in London, the Briefs boys are back, setting phasers to stun you this Christmas! A gloriously glittered fusion of circus, drag, boylesque, and hilarity, let this new show from the all-male troupe take you on a fantastical journey to outer-space and beyond!

Strictly for over 16s, it's a show for the fun, and not fainthearted. Originally from Brisbane - and one from New York - this troupe have managed to bust every gender-conforming myth possible with their eclectic on-stage shenanigans, and are all the more sexier for the sheer skill they display.
