Frank’s son Alex is facing a mental health crisis, and Frank hasn’t a clue what to do about it, or how to get Alex to talk about it. He’s got problems of his own, and what’s happening to Alex is opening up wounds he thought long forgotten.
Weaving real-life stories into a fictional narrative, ‘Being Frank’ uses humour, music, movement and a good deal of honesty to explore men’s relationships with each other, with mental health, and with flat-pack furniture.
Being Frank previewed at Tonbridge Old Fire Station on July 31st 2019 and The Oast Theatre on August 4th 2019. It will be at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe from August 12th to 24th in rep with Trans Pennine at The Space on North Bridge v36.
