Kids Love CHORES! 

A sell-out show at the Edinburgh Festival, Hoopla Clique brings an award-winning story of two typical young rascal kids playing in their mess of a room.  

Inspired by slapstick legends Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, two excitable kids, are definitely, about to, almost, at some stage, are maybe, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do… with highlights of skilled circus stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, you will find yourself on the edge of your seats and giggling until the chores are done.

Audience Feedback

"Haven't laughed so much in ages, we were crying."

"Absolutely manically funny entertaining show. Laughed and laughed... and every time I ask my boys to clean up their room from now on, I will be slightly worried...and counting the rolls of toilet paper first."

"Seriously the best laugh I’ve ever had watching a performance. The kids were going nuts and was a crazy fun time. Would definitely watch it again (I’m 24 years old)!"

"Parents, brace yourself for laughter. Definitely NOT another boring kid’s show. My nephew laughed so hard they nearly fell off the seat. That say's it all really!"

"Thanks for the great show! My 5yo is on the autism spectrum so he was in his absolute element. He could laugh, make noises, and get out of his seat without anybody minding."
