Hotter Project

Hey… we’re Mary Higgins and Ell Potter, a queer writing & performance duo

Hotter Project is a queer performance duo (that’s us) and we make messy, tragicomic theatre, but also radio plays and podcasts and we’re open to suggestions tbh. Our work is all about finding joy in the mucky and difficult things. We want to liberate and empower you, while painting a big stupid grin on your face.

about

Our babies…

Our first show HOTTER hit the Fringe for the first time in 2017 and we’ve been making work together happily ever after. We’ve since fathered another stage show, FITTER, and delivered a bonkers queer audio dramedy, Lem N Ginge, during lockdown. We’ve got plenty more children brewing. Our labia are ragged. Untrue. We’re glowing.

We’ve actually got quite a lot of critical *acclaim* too. In these times, a wank dance can earn you five stars. Go on, try it for yourself.
