Presented by Theodora van der Beek

If boys don’t cry, do they dry up? Or do they become clammy beings, their insides soggy, festering in the rancid juices of their own unshed tears?

Aimed at those identifying as male but open to anyone who owns or can get hold of an onion, an invitation to journey down the rabbit hole within and explore your personal relationship to crying. A poetic audio wandering around science, psychology, gender politics and art that hopes to contribute to the eventual tearing down of the patriarchy, drip by drip. Best experienced alone, this show asks you to recover the dark art of self-healing through exuding salty liquid from your eyes and revel in the curious power and joy of being vulnerable.

I Want to Make Grown Men Weep will be available to access on-demand between Monday 31st May – Sunday 6th June. If you book prior to start of Sprint Digital, a link to access the audio experience will be sent to the email address you book with no later than 12pm on 31st May.
