Benedict Power presents

  • The Studio

Real Life is one man's answer to everyone's problems.

Meet Ben Kewin: a man who believes that with enough passion, strength and charm, he can single-handedly teach us how to live a better life. His ambitious and imaginative mission is to educate and inspire people through the art and craft of performance.

'Real life is a masterful display of tight writing, performance and a great deal of lunacy.' ★★★★ THE SKINNY

Using all of the performance styles, Ben Kewin presents a series of staggeringly beautiful plays and readings that help the audience to understand the things that can sometimes be hard to understand unless they have seen a play about them.

"Being big and strong and powerful and relaxed is easy, but what about the less important things... like understanding, caring and crying?

The power of theatre enables us to explore these emotions together, so we don't have to talk about them in real life. I want to make people cry. That's why my work is important. Let's begin..."

After last year's hugely successful performances at Gorilla in Manchester and Hen and Chickens in London, writer/performer Ben Kewin (Horse of Death, Roberts Webb, Office Party) returns to Manchester with director/producer Benedict Power (Spring Reign, War Stories, Temp/Casual, The Bubbler) to present this critically acclaimed new play.

"You are invited... especially if you're important!"
