Fringe Review: *Highly Recommended Show*

 

 

Gym Party is the new show from Made In China: at once a delicate and violent three-way contest and a hilariously confused call-to-arms. It will explore the psychology of winning and the nature of pride: the desire to be and get the most, in all it’s triumphant and ugly incarnations.
