diRTy is a cutting-edge theatrical journey to redemption through some of the darkest nights of the soul – an explosive, visceral portrayal of disintegration.

When a soul has fled from the trappings and the chains that bind us, what does it take to return and grow towards the light?

diRTy is a beautiful waste; a multimedia perverted physical and visionary extravaganza. This stunning performance is a raw depiction of the taboos and excesses of humanity and a unique piece of trans-feminist theatre that asks “Where would you draw the line?”

Written and performed by Joey Hateley

“Joey’s transition from one persona to another was remarkable; at times flowing seamlessly, at others snapping between characters with admirable speed and precision… An enthralling sensation of tension and suspense.”
