Tim Crowther’s first full-length play about dealing with grief, ’tis unmanly grief, looks into the big messages of how men don’t speak about their emotions and the important role women play in the world.
It is the final show at Theatre N16’s Balham home at The Bedford pub before the company is made homeless.
Everyone deals with grief differently, but when Tom returns home with the corpse of his father, denial takes on a whole new meaning.
As the body decomposes and Tom retreats further from reality, Katie conceals her recent news of pregnancy and embarks on her first trimester alone.
Tim Crowther originally trained as an actor at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
As an actor, Tim also worked extensively at RADA (as actor/ collaborator) on various rehearsed readings of new writing projects.
In 2010, Tim trained as a teacher before returning to university to complete a one-year full time MA in Writing for Performance and Dramaturgy.
It was while at Goldsmiths that ‘tis unmanly grief, which Tim also directs, was conceived.
’tis unmanly grief runs at Theatrs N16 from Novembef 28 – December 16.
