The Measure of a Man

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Social Change
How do you measure a man? Is it the way he walks, the way he talks? The critically-acclaimed Gavin Roach returns to Adelaide with his one man show, The Measure of a Man. Told in Roach's trademark humorous, raw and deeply candid style, The Measure of a Man will stare into the heart of one man's sexual anxieties and pull out the kinds of stories much LGBTI theatre shies away from -- stories often shrouded in embarrassment or shame.

A perfect balance of comedy and drama -- from light-hearted and uproariously funny moments to gut-wrenching, dark moments that expose the scars and open wounds that still remain, hidden underneath the glitter. The Measure of a Man is unmissable -- if there is a show that will enchant, enlighten and exhilarate in equal measure, this is it!
