Newish Al Quoz events space Warehouse Four is starting a programme of fringe shows that played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Most will be one or two nights only, but the quality is very high so catch them if you can.
This one is a fierce, funny but frightening monologue about the ‘meninist’ movement so adored by the alt-right, written by the very talented Penelope Skinner. American actor Donald Sage Mackay plays Roger, a man who once had a good job at AT&T but who now finds himself divorced, paying alimony and working as the third assistant manager at a supermarket. Then he discovers Angry Alan, a pioneer of the online men’s rights movement, whose argument that things have gone too far and that we now live in a “gynocentric society” comforts and sustains Roger. He starts to feel better about himself … but there are consequences to the kind of warped self-realisation that he’s being encouraged to feel.
There’s a second show on 3 April.
