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!
“.. Roach has my attention....A bare stage, apart from one chair, is all that is needed as Roach begins his brave and sincere monologue. – Stage Whispers
