WE THE MEN – TORONTO FRINGE 2018 PRESS RELEASE

 

 

From Press Release: 

Exploring the private and real conversations happening right now between men as they investigate whether the sexes are coming closer together or moving further apart.

In 2017 show co-creator and director Tracey Erin Smith took 54 women on the Soulomobile, Soulo Theatre’s storytelling bus, to the Women’s March on Washington and now feels the need to check in on how men are doing since the evolutionary movement.

This brand new and groundbreaking show from the award-winning SOULO Theatre is an outrageous comedy where 10 women walk in the shoes of men in an attempt to capture the state of men in North America.

The script is based on REAL conversations with REAL men exploring the backlash towards the #metoo movement while sharing a few of their own #metoo stories. With a culturally and artistically diverse cast from Nigerian, Pakistani, Indonesian, Jewish and LGBTQ backgrounds the story brings together 10 ‘men’ ​(women who have been theatrically transformed into men)​ for a weekend of beers, bonfires, confessions and a few tears. They decide the world needs to hear what they had to say, so the dudes decide to put on a Fringe show and ‘Take Back The Mic’.
