A dynamic piece of Physical Verbatim Theatre, that explores how the impact of childhood experiences shape men’s adult lives. Blending humour and storytelling with powerful elements of physical theatre, this production is an uncompromising insight into what takes us to breaking point.
Here's what the press said about One Mississippi:
"One Mississippi raises profound questions about the structures of the society around men, which seem at least as strongly implicated in their distress as any personal tendencies towards mental disturbance."
Joyce McMillian (The Scotsman)
"One Mississippi is a delicate and poignant piece of verbatim theatre, specifically bringing to light mental health issues affecting men… one of the standout elements of One Mississippi is its commitment to exploring this issue from a genuinely diverse group of men."
Liam Rees (The Play’s the Thing)
"One Mississippi is a brutally honest portrayal of male isolation, self-destruction and suicide."
Beth Blakemore (The Wee Review)
