A Brief History of the Fragile Male Ego – online

On Demand, 30 Jan - 06 Feb

Andrea has been giving her lecture but it’s not going well. Her previous events have been marred by protests and she’s hoping the open-minded audience will hear her out.

The multi-award-winning Jordan & Skinner present their riotous and very funny solo show that cuts to the bone of the current conversation around gender politics. Following a hugely popular world premiere during the Fringe 2019, audiences can enjoy a very special return of the hit show, now reworked as a performance for the screen! 


“exceptional.. Everyone should see this” ★★★★★ FEMINIST FRINGE

"appropriately absurd” ★★★★ EDFEST
