A stand-up tragedy set performed by the mind of a young man in shock, it has been described as “a stunning, bittersweet story” and “theatrically beautiful” by Noises Off Magazine, and “Hypnotic” “beautifully executed” “perfectly captured” and “visceral” by The Sunday Times. A combination of performance poetry, physical theatre, pounding music and projection tell the story of the many lives of Lee and someone he loves.

It was initially constructed during a week long residency at Hull Truck Theatre in July 2016, and premiered in February 2017 at the New Diorama Theatre as part of the Hull Companies Showcase in conjunction with Hull 2017. It toured next to the National Student Drama Festival 2017, followed by a week stint at the Edinburgh Fringe with the #HullTakeOver as part of Hull 2017.

‘Sad Little Man is one of those things you go into unprepared, then it turns around and knocks you for six. This play hurts.’
– The Edinburgh Guide

‘it burns with a palpable rawness, a deep-seated, inexorable grief that utterly shatters its audience.’
– The Stage
