Pandorum Theatre Company’s 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Show
F*CKBOYS FOR FREEDOM
Are delighted to announce fundraising partnership for CALM
Pandorum Theatre Company will be raising funds for CALM after their Edinburgh Fringe performances of F*ckboys for Freedom. The comedy explores issues of toxic masculinity, challenging these issues which not only perpetuate sexism, but also make it difficult for men to express feeling and emotions. As a company that aims to promote gender equality, tackling these issues is very important to us. 100% of the funds raised will go towards helping CALM continue their fantastic work.
The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) challenges a culture that prevents men seeking help when they need it, and offers support to men in the UK who are down or in crisis through their helpline, webchat, CALMzine, campaigns and website. Men account for 3 in 4 suicides, and suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45. Alongside CALM, Pandorum Theatre Company believes that issues of gender and gender stereotyping massively contribute towards this imbalance.
The show itself is a risqué and murky journey through the realms of the phenomena known as the f*ckboy. A satirical fusion of theatre and sketch comedy playing with penises and the patriarchy. Funny, sharp, and bitingly relevant. Follow the journey through the life of a young man commonly described as a f*ckboy and his bizzare, hilarious, worrisome and sometimes all-too-relatable encounters with a whole host of other characters. Pandorum Theatre Company (Scottish Arts Club Theatre Awards shortlist 2016) brings you this unique piece of thought-provoking comedy theatre that you don’t want to miss.
