The Agents

Comedy  /  Theatre / Princess Alice

In this outrageous satirical comedy, a trio of mischievous performers take a satirical look at the absurdities of the real estate industry. Using grotesque physicality and biting humour, these bouffons delve into the cutthroat world of property development, flipping houses, and gentrification. No one is safe from their hilarious and cutting critiques – from slick real estate agents to clueless home buyers to greedy landlords. With a healthy dose of irreverence and a keen eye for the ridiculous, this show is a must-see for anyone who’s ever rented an overpriced apartment or dreamed of owning a seaside mansion. Get ready to laugh, cringe, and maybe even learn a thing or two about the absurdities of the housing market.

Kyla Davis:
Kyla Davis is a theatre-maker, director, educator and an activist. She is consistently moved by the potential for live theatre, in particular mask and movement theatre, to mobilise hearts, minds and hands in service of a more empathetic and caring world. It is because of this empathetic connection, that she is powerfully drawn to choral work. She enjoys experimenting with the endless possibilities for play within am ensemble where there are no leaders and no followers but rather, a hivemind of hyper-present performers. She loves masks, puppetry and the world of the bouffon!
