Put your hands up – IT’S A RAID.
In a world gone to hell, four nobodies, four horsemen, four lonely desperadoes, unite to face down the future.
Riffing on rock gigs, dance marathons, school sports days and rodeos, Desperado is a manic and adrenaline-fuelled display of camaraderie and strength which fights to dispel the myth that mankind has reached the end of the line.
Vibrant and fierce, rowdy and exhausting, driven by power and pain, this show pushes back against the grinding monotony and brutality of the modern world.
