Please Hold is a devised, satirical comedy-horror show centered around a ready-to-please sex doll helpline.
A genius inventor, with a burning desire for love, is introduced when he conceives his own ideal, hyper-feminine and hyper-sexual sex machine: Precious. The inventor’s fantasy shatters as his own creation quickly gains sentience and discovers her sexual independence. Their worlds collapse as their conflict of interest ends in a dangerous altercation.
With original songs and lots of sex gags, the show is underpinned by a critique of man’s desire, and the objectification of women’s bodies in our patriarchal, consumerist culture.
