Musical comedy on mental health comes to the Alley Theatre

07 February 2018

Tinderbox Theatre Company will place the often taboo issue of men’s mental health under the microscope when they bring their ground-breaking musical comedy ‘The Man Who Fell To Pieces’ to the Alley Theatre, Strabane on Friday 16th February. 

The acclaimed play tells the story of John who is falling apart, literally.

He spends days holding himself together with tape and cling film and other DIY tools from B&Q.

He keeps his traumatic experiences to himself even though Caroline, his partner knows that something is not quite right.
The Man Who Fell to Pieces is the signature performance for Tinderbox Theatre Company's new adventure of exploring the potential of the imagination through physical storytelling and play, presenting a powerful story that celebrates what it means to be human.

Formed in Belfast in 1988, Tinderbox Theatre Company are one of Northern Ireland’s longest established and most respected independent theatre companies. Tinderbox has created over thirty three world premieres that have toured throughout Ireland, the UK and USA.

They aim to produce world class theatre, providing opportunities for writers and theatre makers to develop their ideas, participation and community as central components of the artistic programme

The project is supported by the Arts Council Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council.
Tickets to ‘The Man Who Fell To Pieces’ are £10 each and available from the Alley Theatre Box Office on 028 71 384444 or online www.alley-theatre.com.
