Resident thespians Creative Electric stage two very special performances of their 2016 Fringe hit, Fragility, as part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations.  Fragility is a highly visual, physical performance that explores what it means to be a young man in 2016, created by eight young men aged 17-22 years. The production, set over the course of a night out explores expectations of masculinity with a focus on the pressure to have sex. Pressure from peers. From partners. Yourself.

Entry is by donation, with donations from the door takings going to Rape Crisis Scotland.
