REVIEW: Bourgeois & Maurice’s Insane Animals at HOME, Manchester

It’s here, it’s queer, and it’s going to save humanity.

Award-winning cult cabaret duo Bourgeois and Maurice return to HOME for their newly commissioned show, Insane Animals, running until 14 March 2020. The brainchild of George Heyworth and Liv Morris, Bourgeois and Maurice are two aliens from a new, “really obscure” planet, intent on saving the human race (from themselves).  

We are bound to be fans of any show that opens with the stars comparing themselves to “Harry and Meghan…but with even less financial independence,” before adding, “thanks Arts Council!” – but the show continues to impress, with glittering sets, a PVC-clad cast and George and Liv’s satirical social commentary throughout, under the direction of Philip McMahon. 
Insane Animalsis a musical comedy that doesn’t stop shocking, entertaining or asking questions until the last curtain fall, with plenty of surprises, plot twists and jabs at the ‘impending doom’ of civilisation. 
With expert choreography, more-than-catchy songs and a filthy joke around every corner, Bourgeois and Maurice will take you on a time-travelling tale of what it means to be human.

Bourgeois & Maurice Insane Animalsruns from 28 February – 14 March 2020 at HOME, Manchester. Click here for tickets and more information.
