What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/Please Hold

Please Hold is a devised, satirical comedy-horror show centred around a ready-to-please sex doll helpline.


A genius inventor, with a burning desire for love, is introduced when he conceives his own ideal, hyper-feminine and hyper-sexual sex machine: Precious. The inventor's fantasy shatters as his own creation quickly gains sentience and discovers her sexual independence. Their worlds collapse as their conflict of interest ends in a dangerous altercation.


With original songs and lots of sex gags, the show is underpinned by a critique of man's desire, and the objectification of women's bodies in our patriarchal, consumerist culture.

A Company of Six has been making theatre together since 2018. They are a group of BA Acting and BA Theatre graduates from The University of Chichester. Made up of four company directors and a handful of cast members, they aim to make accessible theatre focusing on feminist themes, queer representation and societal issues.
