“There was a time when the King’s Head seemed pretty focussed on the male gay experience. So, to see a season entitled Boys! Boys! Boys! might suggest a return to past times. But the King’s Head artistic director has been broadening the palette in many ways and that includes this season where every single play is produced or directed by women. There are five plays over the season kicking off with Jarman. This dramatic recreation of the life of the film-maker Derek Jarman is directed by the multi-talented Sarah-Louise Young. whose show The Silent Treatment will be at the Edinburgh fringe this summer. Christopher Wollaton’s Brawn, about men’s body image and mental health, returns to the King’s Head after a sell out season in 2019, Quentin Crisp is celebrated in Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, a young man questions his future after a one night stand in Bi Bi Baileigh and Mediocre White Male explores male fragility and anger in a changing world.”

Overview

What if the lads at work poke fun at you for your chicken legs? What if the girl of your dreams goes off with popular lad James Robinson? What if you’re sick to death of looking in the mirror and hating what you see?

You get ripped, that’s what.

Locked away in his dad's garage Ryan puts his body through a gruelling regime - determined to bulk and cut, until he reaches perfection.

★★★★★ Brawn “packs quite a punch” (London Theatre 1). This one man show by Christopher Wollaton is “beautifully delivered” (The Latest). Exploring body dysmorphia and mental health issues in men.
