A powerful new theatrical work-in-progress that delves into the complexities of modern masculinity. Follow the journey of a group of young men as they confront their personal battles with toxic masculinity, challenging the roles society has imposed upon them. Through raw, honest performances, they reveal their struggles to break free from damaging labels and redefine what it means to be a man today from their lived experience. This work in progress sparks important conversations and provides a poignant exploration of identity, mental health strength, and vulnerability. Join us for a sharing of introspection and exploration. Followed by a Q & A that explores the role of theatre to support and promotes mental well-being.


A work in progress by Collision Theatre, creating theatre 'for', 'with' and 'by' young people and with support fromEdinburgh College. 

Premiering at the inaugural Healing Arts Week - Tramway.


Can the arts heal?

HAS is a week-long celebration of arts and health events, highlighting the joy they bring to those who take part, and their importance to the nation’s physical, mental and social health.

The Healing Arts Scotland opening celebration will take place outside the Scottish Parliament at 4pm on Monday 19 August as part of Edinburgh International Festival (@edintfest) and the Festival of Politics, and features over 250 performers and participants from across Scotland.
