****½ stars

Back for Perth Fringe World after debuting this show in 2019, Head First Acrobats present Railed, a tried and tested western themed circus show featuring four male performers. Railed is a hilarious, irreverent and dynamic show that explores masculinity in all its forms.

There is plenty of entertainment in this show as each scene displays bare-chested cowboys performing excellent stunts and other circus skills including an impressive Cyr Wheel act and the scene-steeling performer who knows his way around the diabolo (spindle and string). This cowboy appears in most scenes, building on his character as he interacts with others with an array of sexy surprises throughout that has the audience in stitches.

The soundtrack is fantastic and the carefully chosen songs are crucial for the enjoyment and wild ride that is Railed.

Railed is showing in The West Australian Spiegeltent, Woodside Pleasure Garden from 23rd to 26th January moving to The Edith Spiegeltent at Yagan Square from 28th January and 9th February (excluding Mondays).

Tickets from $26.00-$39.00.
