Chores was a runaway success story in 2018, winning Audience Favourite at Prague Fringe, selling out Brighton Fringe, runner-up Best Children's Show at Perth FRINGEWORLD and winner of the Weekly Award for Best Children's Show at Adelaide Fringe.

Two excitable brothers are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do…

Julian Roberts, one half of the Australian circus duo, said: “The show is inspired by Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, it’s made for children but there is plenty of hilarity to amuse parents and families too!”

After the show it’s the kids’ chance to have a go at doing all that cool stuff too, in Monty’s Circus Workshop, led by the two stars of the show. You need separate tickets for the workshop.

The main show runs on Friday, May 31 for an hour from 1pm and is suitable for children aged three and over. The workshop lasts another hour, starting at 2.30pm, and is aimed at children aged five and above. 

The Montgomery is on Surrey Street, Sheffield.
