‘Hello, Deliveroo? I’d like to order an axe.’

Welcome to the turf war to end all wars. The two biggest gym chains in Dublin go head to head to settle old scores and gain control of the city. But when love crosses tribal lines, violence and vengeance gush across the city. Brought to the stage by award-winning director Louise Lowe, this is an epic tale made modern; a fusion of dance, movement and text soaked in sweat and fuelled by desire.

Gym. Swim. Party.

Best. Day. Ever.
