Co-produced with Deep Diving Ensemble and theSpaceUK for a 3-week run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 from 5th - 27th August.
On average, 12 men take their own life every single day. Rooted in true experiences and deep exploration of mental health, 5 Out of 10 Men invites men to be open – to journey unabashedly into themselves.
With a fun, interactive style and a penetrating dark humour, a mixed ensemble leads a wounded man as he weaves a confessional hymn to his dead brother, torn between the man he is and a man he strives to be.
★★★★★ review from Richard Beck at Broadway Baby:
"5 Out of 10 Men really is groundbreaking theatre...This is not just drama for entertainment but theatre for social change."
