A celebration of manhood.
What do we feel, what do we show, what do you see?
We are throwing ourselves headfirst into exploring this question with a cast of young men of colour, sharing their stories, their experiences, their hopes.
From our tenderness to our silliness, our strength to our vulnerability from the way we walk to the pitch of our voice. We are young men whose communities, families and heritage span the entire world.
We want to show the things about boys that you don’t always get to see.
Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre in association with HOME.
ABOUT THE PAPPY SHOW
We are a playful physical and visual ensemble theatre company. Formed in 2013 in order to train actors in physical theatre, we use exercise and training to devise and create work.
Having a space to play, devise and fail improves us as performers and informs the approach of our work.
