BALLAD OF A THIN MAN
‘As I regained consciousness, I found myself staring into a mirror in a stranger’s bathroom, only to discover that I was soaking wet, covered in blood and completely naked. Yet, without the faintest idea of how I had come to be in this situation…’
A comical tale of love, heartbreak and a dressing gown, Ballad Of A Thin Man is writer and performer Callum Mitchell’s debut one man show.
Following the demise of a relationship, Callum is at rock bottom. He hasn’t washed, shaved or left his room in weeks, when an accidental discovery in the attic of his parents’ house leads him on a journey of self-discovery via an embarrassing childhood memory, the purchase of a dressing gown he despises and a near-death experience.
A darkly funny hour from an exciting new voice in writing and comedy.
Based on a true story & featuring music from Seamas Carey.
‘A bonkers, brave, one-man rollercoaster; somewhere between a revealing conversation on a night out and a clever, witty lecture. Interesting, funny, fresh, self-deprecating and without an inch of pretension, which is a rare and wonderful thing.’ – APPLES & SNAKES.
‘All the awkward moments in life given a sense of beauty. Fearless and original.’ – ROSS SUTHERLAND, AUTHOR OF EMERGENCY WINDOW & THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU LEAVE TOWN.
