Gavin Lind is shattered, middle-aged, gay and getting divorced. First World problems don’t get crueller than this. Or do they? Gavin is left wondering what happened to his perfectly mediocre existence. His body is giving up on him, he’s fast realising not everyone loves him. Mediocrity is not the safe haven he thought it was. So there’s only one thing he can do. Pick up the pieces and take the world head on. His amazing dad bod with its killer vegan accent has a lot to offer. And he’s out to prove it, or at least die trying.

Graham, I think you have your "Shattereds" confused (two shows with the same title), but your point is well taken!

Absolutely offensive and brilliantly executed. Cringe worthy, awkward, fantastic.
I thought I was the only unexpectedly single, middle-aged, gay male, vegan until I saw this show.

Graham Anderson 117 days ago

This show is absolute rubbish, a one woman performance of her sad life, all four of us, two couples, agreed it is thee worse show we had ever seen, complete trauma from the outset and just constant yapping and over acting, even the supposed funny bits weren’t !!

Don’t waste your money never mind an hour of your time you’ll never get back,

Believe me it won’t just be the actor that could require therapy after enduring this drivel,

Lind is an engaging raconteur. His stories have form and they manage to keep you engaged with what he is saying long after you have left the venue. It’s funny but the comedy has a degree of niche about it. Where I did not get offended, I am sure many...

Shattered is an intense and bruising journey into Diana Varco’s psyche, as she details her struggle to piece herself together after facing several traumatic events. Her fragmentation is physicalised, the warring factions within her performed as distinct personae.
