Men In The Cities 2014
Innovative Writer and performer Chris Goode (Monkey Bars) will bring his new play Men in the Cities – an incendiary piece of experimental storytelling for two performances ahead of a run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Framed by two violent deaths – the apparently inexplicable suicide of a young gay man, and the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in May 2013 – Men in the Cities is a compelling piece about harm and complicity, and about the forces that shape our relationships.
Through fractured snapshots of seemingly disconnected lives, Men in the Cities presents a challenging but radically humane portrait of how we live now.
Men in the Cities is written and performed by Chris Goode, directed by Wendy Hubbard, designed by Naomi Dawson, with lighting by Katharine Williams.
