Actor Awareness presents

25th - 29th June
18:15 (13:00 matinee)
A dark comedy about toxic masculinity, what goes through your inner monologue when Netflix and chilling, coupled with stories of lads' banter.
The story follows Ben, a working class chef, whose week consists of trying to rekindle a relationship with his Mum after 11 years, blowing off some steam on a night out with his work colleague Ryan, and accidentally headbutting his child hood sweetheart Sophie on their first date. Throughout the story we hear the inner monologues of characters using voice overs, explaining what we all think in various awkward situations.
The show has now been extended and adapted into a piece tackling male mental health. Suicide is the biggest killer of young men under the age of 45, and the Mental Health Foundation statistics show that 75% of suicides are committed by men. Netflix and Chill highlights the pressures men face in modern dating, the toxic world of 'lad culture' and the difficulty men face when it comes to talking about their feelings.
Netflix and Chill is kindly supported by The Movember Foundation - a charity tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Director Luke Adamson
