Hard Work in Progress

Kiran Saggu hates hard work.

So she’s created, rehearsed and ready to perform an entire show to tell you just that. Fake it til you make it, I guess?

Where does this pressure to work hard come from, and why does it come easier for some than others? Kiran fights the forces of her immigrant background, her capitalist American/British influences and her love of attention against her innate desire to just lay down and eat snacks off a carefully balanced plate on her stomach.

Despite being a lazy git - she’s the kinda girl that’ll refrain from trashing Kendall Jenner on Twitter in case they end up being in the same social circles in a couple years.

This show will cover topics like, 'Are social climbing and clout-chasing Olympic qualifying sports?' 'How can I live with the fact that I didn’t start that YouTube channel at 12yo to make me into a millionaire now?' And 'Can romanticising your pot noodle help you delude yourself out of a seemingly inescapable class system?'

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.
