Father Figurine

— The Wardrobe Theatre
Body Politic questions the stigmas around the mental health of men and boys
time:19:30
price: Tickets £12

Information:

Father Figurine explores the fractured relationship between a father and his son and their inability to healthily deal with a traumatic event. Will they be able to share their emotions with each other? Or will they fall into the statistic of nearly half of men believing they can’t express their feelings?

With the current climate of mental health discussion, Father Figurine talks about the fragilities and vulnerabilities in men and young boys. Figures show young people are affected disproportionately with over half of mental health problems, starting by the age of 14 and 75% by 18. Body Politic’s work isn’t just about raising awareness. It’s a fight to keep mental healthcare at the tip of our tongues and affect real change.

“Father Figurine is a powerful show, profound, painful and full of empathy. Stereotypical ideas about masculinity and male behaviour are stubborn but it will be up to this generation to challenge them.” - Mark Aspen Reviews

(The performance on the 13th will be followed by a post-show talk and Q&A)
