Presented by Jack AG Britton

Jack AG Britton presents Mighty; a TED-talk-meets-theatre show that combines comedy, live music and spoken word to ask the big (or little) question: should we be taking Heightism more seriously?

Often whimsical, sometimes woeful, Mighty delves into masculinity, body image and mental health in a documentary performance that could just about make it onto the best rides at Alton Towers.

Supported by Arts Council England, Curve Theatre Leicester, Attenborough Arts Centre Leicester.
