"An existential vaudeville duo, wringing superb physical comedy from two characters who struggle to move.” - Jule to Jason

“A carousel of stupidity you will not want to get off.” - Jason to Jule

Under the guise of an interactive workshop and focus group, two wannabe playwrights attempt to develop The Agōgē Method, a satirical play offering a handbook to masculine success through Grecian discipline:

The Agōgē Method (pronounced ah-go-GAY) synopsis -

An aspiring men’s wellness influencer begins to unravel during a public seminar upon discovering the 2006 film “300” is not, in fact, historically accurate.

Through confessional meta-humour, musical flourishes and scripted scenes from a play that is yet to be realised, The Agōgē Method is a camp meditation on collaboration, unqualified social media personalities and our refracted lives prolapsing in a digital age.
