Mediocre White Male
Following 5-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, Mediocre White Male heads to VAULT Festival.
Mediocre White Male is a one man play about ancient history, recent past and present lies.
In his late 20s (essentially…well…30…ish) our protagonist is still living in the same town he grew up in and trapped in a job where he can’t open his mouth without offending a younger colleague. He longs for a simpler time of Pokémon cards, school nicknames and stable pronouns. But nostalgia is always dangerous.
Everything seems to be changing but him. With his job under threat and a figure from his past returning to haunt him, it might be time to face some uncomfortable truths.
Exploring what it’s like to be left behind in a small community, feeling abandoned as the world changes and confused in the face of a progressive agenda you don’t understand, Mediocre White Male is a searing portrait of male anger, fragility and vulnerability.
