Why See Support Group for Men?

PlaysComedy Theatre

A satirical comedy about men

Notions of masculinity are upended in this satirical comedy, that challenges what it means to be a man in today's America. Whilst a group of pals meet up every Thursday for what their spouses think is "Guys Night", the truth is deeper than what people expect. For their sessions are anything but beers and football games; they have formed their own support group where they can sound off about everything under the sun - failed relationships, midlife crises and health concerns. All is ticking along nicely until a new arrival into the group - where everything goes sideways in a flash.

Set in a suburban Chicago bachelor apartment above a bar, the four male friends meet every week for their "no women allowed" talking session. Full of ritual including using their Indian names and handing around a talking stick in the form of a baseball bat, they draw strength from each other and their problems, if not useful advice. However when an uninvited guest gatecrashes the proceedings, the four friends find themselves listening to good advice from a very unlikely source.

The play was devised by playwright Ellen Fairey upon watching her previous play Graceland. Considering the social isolation of men and why so many find themselves lonely and depressed, this satirical comedy gently pokes fun at overt masculinity and breaks stereotypes of what it means to be a man.
