Description

The ‘remarkable’ (Scotsman) and bite-sized Jack AG Britton presents Mighty; a TED talk-meets-theatre show that combines comedy, live music and spoken word to ask the big (or little) question: should we be taking heightism more seriously? Often whimsical, sometimes woeful, Mighty delves into masculinity, body image and mental health in a documentary performance that could just about make it onto the best rides at Alton Towers. ‘A brilliantly unsettling true story.’ (ExeuntMagazine.com on I Used to Hear Footsteps 2016).

ThreeWeeks (4/5 stars) 61 days ago

Theatre met music, spoken word and comedy in this TED talk-style performance, all about heightism and the questions surrounding it. With a loop peddle, computer and microphone, Jack Britton used his voice (and the audience’s at one point) to create tracks to accompany the show. This was impressive to watch...

The Stage [paywall] (3/5 stars) 69 days ago

It’s never unimportant to have unconscious bias made conscious. In this solo piece, Jack Britton – 5ft 4 3/4in – takes us through his personal history of being shorter than average. All the jibes from friends and colleagues, the accusations of ‘small man syndrome’, the school bullying, and the horrid...
