“Looking out over the country, this country, where I was born and raised,
I wonder what’s going to become of us. Because this can’t be the future, can it? Everyone just… changing the rules?”

Roger thinks the world’s gone mad. He hates his job, his ex-wife torments him and to top it all, his girlfriend just discovered feminism. Roger’s about to lose his shit. Until he discovers Angry Alan: online activist and “voice of reason”…

A darkly comic new play about masculinity in crisis from award-winning playwright Penelope Skinner, performed by Donald Sage Mackay.
