A Man's Man

Book Tickets
In a hall in the North East of England seven men share their mental health struggles. With honesty and vulnerability, they start the process of healing.

Suicide is the biggest cause of death of men under 50. The North East has the highest suicide rates in the UK. Grounding this crisis in a history of industrial decline, A Man’s Man focuses on seven working-class men who meet in a community hall to talk about their mental health – unearthing the common bonds that bring them together, the struggles that have been tearing them apart, and the processes that are leading to their healing.

Content Guidance: contains discussions of suicide, depression, domestic violence and sexual abuse.
