Cult cabaret duo Bourgeois and Maurice will premiere their new musical Insane Animals at HOME Manchester this February with a two week run.

The larger than life production features time travel, aliens, political and environmental commentary all wrapped up in a musical.

The alternative performers Bourgeois and Maurice (George Heyworth and Liv Morris) continue HOME’s spring 2020 theatre season with the production featuring a cast of eight.  The high-energy low-brow actor-musicians are working under the direction of Philip McMahon who has been named as Creative Director for Ireland’s entry in the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest.
