Description

Times are tough for George. He's a middle class, middle-aged, straight, white man. George is on a madcap journey to find what he desires – a gentle touch, a glance of recognition, a true female embrace. But just when everything's within reach, George is thrown into a turmoil of love and loss, desire and fear, anger and relief, turning his insides out and his upside down. A sinister, rollicking tale about the down and dark sides of menkind and about what remains after the fall. Directed and co-written by award-winning (Les Molières, 2019) director and actress Lee Delong.

This show was highly intense, playful and fun. I was enthralled throughout and would recommend anyone see it should you have the chance. One of the best shows I've seen this year.

A stupendous piece of theatre! Bursting with energy from start to finish. Intriguing, playful, hilarious and poignant piece of theatre. I was blown away by the actors ability to command the stage! A wonderful piece in which I thoroughly loved every minute.

A wonderful find and a fascinating performance. You just can't help rooting for George and he strives to live up to the title! Do go and see.

Emotionally intelligent, weird, empathic sometimes a bit icky, reminded me of dreaming... I think the actor was having fun delving in his & the collective unconscious... I enjoyed it very much not like anything else I have ever seen.
