An award-winning show about gender, language and humankind will be in Bristol later this month.

Two Man Show has been put together by theatre company RashDash, which won an award for the show at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres has teamed up with MAYK – the people behind Bristol’s Mayfest – and with Theatres Beyond at Circomedia to put on Two Man Show.

The production follows John and Dan, who keep hearing men have all the power but do not experience it for themselves.

The raucous show looks at masculinity and patriarchy through a mixture of language, music and dance.

Two Man Show will be at Circomedia in St Paul’s Church, in Portland Square, from September 13-16. Performances will be at 8pm each evening. The show is recommended for people aged 16 and older.

Tickets, priced £12-14, are available by calling 01179 020344 or via
