Description

Before 30 follows Chris, a Deliveroo driver trying to make his way in the world. His previous struggles with depression and anxiety resurface as he faces the prospect of turning 30, comparing himself to his grandad who seemingly achieved life's milestones so easily. This true-to-home one-man show tells a surreal and honest story about mental health that any age can relate to. Told across twelve chapters and combining elements of visual story telling, direct address, multi-rolling, spoken word and stand-up comedy.
