    Chris Goode and Company in association with Royal Court Theatre

    Fringe First Award, August 2014

    Three-time Fringe First winner Chris Goode (Monkey Bars) returns to the Traverse with an incendiary piece of experimental storytelling.

    Framed by two violent deaths – the apparently inexplicable suicide of a young gay man, and the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in May 2013 – Men in the Cities is a compelling piece about harm and complicity, and about the forces that shape our relationships.

    Through fractured snapshots of seemingly disconnected lives, Men in the Cities presents a challenging but radically humane portrait of how we live now.

    See our Men in the Cities Storify page for a round up of reviews, tweets and social media mentions.
