They've Already Won

CREATED AND PERFORMED BY HARRIET GILLIES AND PIERCE WILCOX.

“39 RENAISSANCE BABIES WHO CAN’T EVEN.” “33 DOGS THAT CANNOT EVEN HANDLE IT RIGHT NOW.”
They just can’t. They simply cannot.

They’ve Already Won is a rigorous appraisal of our cultural moment performed by two idiots who are at risk of actually getting drunk on stage.

If this is how we talk about things that don’t matter, how do we talk about how we are literally going to actually die? It’s all our fault, and there’s nothing we can do about it?
In pantsuits and pom poms that are totally ~on fleek~, Harriet and Pierce are going to straight-up wrestle with the fact that the world is an evil and selfish place. And they won’t get distracted on the internet. Not even once. Maybe once.

In a world of hyperbolic sharing, what happens when you’ve already said this is the worst thing you’ll see all week and then something even worse happens? What is the actual best thing? Is it this show?

 

PRESS ON HOW GOOD THEY'VE ALREADY WON IS:

"At a time when many major theatre companies are often bound by theatrical conservatism, however well staged, talented young performers, Harriet Gillies and Pierce Wilcox have the courage, the imagination, the intelligence and the exuberance to take risks, challenge the status quo and dare to embrace experimentation."
