The Pappy Show presents


A celebration of manhood. What do we feel, what do we show, what do you see? The Pappy Show are throwing themselves head first into exploring this question with a cast of young men of colour, sharing their stories, their experiences, their hopes.

From our tenderness to our silliness, our strength to our vulnerability, from the way we walk to the pitch of our voice we are young men whose communities, families and heritage span the entire world. We want to show the things about boys that you don’t always get to see.

★★★★ “Delicate and powerful, aggressive and peaceful… Electric.” – The Reviews Hub

“The performers are very watchable, keeping the audience exactly where they want them throughout the piece’s well-rehearsed haphazard structure.” – North West End

“A troupe of remarkable physical performers, whose work captivates because it’s built on trust and touch.” – Exeunt

★★★★ “Tender, strong, funny, vulnerable, charming and so much more.” – Broadway World

“The company are stunning – their excitement and dedication cannot be faulted.” – The Play’s The Thing
