Explores identity, nationality, masculinity – and what it means to belong in a world weighed down by the expectations of others, through a daring collage of words, music and movement with a 13-strong cast and a multitude of voices.

A vivid, urgent and deeply personal portrait of 21st-century England at the crossroads of past, present and future, inspired by conversations with fathers and sons from the creators’ home towns in the heart of the country.

A vital and necessary show about what we were, who we are and what we’d like to become.

Co-created by Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham, Karl Hyde from Underworld and playwright Simon Stephens. 

Ages 14+

Arrives at the Lyric after premiering in Manchester.

“Moving and often euphoric verbatim piece... Emotional wallop.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Pioneering piece of music-dance-theatre... Moments... turn conversational loose-change into a rare bonanza of shared experience”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Impressively mobilises that near-cliché, The Crisis In Masculinity, just as Stephens’ script articulates it.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“[Its] power comes, largely, from Hyde's music – not just the thumping, industrial baseline rhythms, but the male voice itself.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“A self-flagellating folly that fails to cast much light on men and their dads.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
