“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.”

Tickets from £15

Overview

They say that as you get older, time sort of… speeds up. Well, it doesn’t feel like that for me…not here…

It’s been years since high school, since everyone left for uni, since starting the summer job that’s never ended…and since you.

These days, you can’t even say hello to the new girl without offending her. Apparently it’s a generational thing. I would say I’m the same generation…I’m in my late 20’s…essentially.

Things change? Yeah, well, some of us are sick of change. Change is a thief.

What about me? What about us? I think people forget about the people that stay.

A searing portrait of male anger, fragility, and vulnerability, Mediocre White Male unpacks what it means to feel abandoned as the world changes, and confused in the face of a progressive agenda you don’t fully understand.

Mediocre White Male returns to London after touring and performing at Park Theatre.

Delivering a ★★★★ “captivating performance” - Scottish Daily Mail, co-writer/performer Will Close (Dave Comedy Award Winner) takes to stage to re-live ancient history, the recent past and present lies. It’s time to face up to some uncomfortable truths.
