If you hadn’t heard, How to be a Man is heading off on tour this year!
I’ve got some funding from the lovely folk at Arts Council England, the first set of rehearsals were at Contact Theate, Manchester in March and the next set will beat Z-Arts in May, directed by my wonderful friends at Paper People Theatre before I set off on tour in June and throughout the rest of the year.
Dates for the tour are;
1st & 2nd June – Plymouth Fringe Festival, Jill Cragie Cinema
16th July – The Bureau Arts Centre, Blackburn
26th & 27th July – Manchester Fringe Festival, The Kings Arms
1st, 2nd & 3rd December – Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle
There are other tour dates to be announced later in the year, so keep your eyes open!
I’ve also got a fancy new trailer…
And the posters and flyers for the first half of the tour have been sent off to the printers.
This tour will be my farewell to How to be a Man, I’ve been working on it for over 2 years now and have learnt a lot, about gender, equality, masculinity and also about making solo performance. I’m going to be gearing up to making my next show this year, but for now that can wait as there’s still plenty of work to do on How to be a Man before I get it all dressed up and show it off around town.
Hopefully I’ll see you all soon!
