A show about a crisis of masculinity

Performed by a different woman each night

“Fabulous. The balance between light and shade,

dark and darker is just right”

London Theatre 1

“Total fangirl for The Absolute Truth About Absolutely Everything - man holds himself to account for misogyny”

Jessie Thompson, Evening Standard

“The piece left me incredibly angry... truly disgusted me... this, and so much more.”

Laura Gilbert, Exeunt


“Affecting and crafted, vividly poetic, could be a tragic examination of masculinity”

Reviews Hub


“Serves as a reminder of how important individual action is in creating political change”

The Stage


"complex, fascinating and sophisticated - it’s really very good indeed"

Amber Massie-Blomfield, Executive Director,

Camden People's Theatre


“Fantastically unsettling and searching work. All the more so because it feels warmly, intricately and methodically done – whilst always living on the edge of anarchy”

Tim Cowbury, Made In China


“I loved how unpredictable, how alive, how dangerous it feels. I love Olly’s persona: he’s a charmer, a trickster, a penitent... I love the writing:the little repetitions, the author’s voice in the guest’s script, the sheer rhythm and poetry of the last section. There’s a delicious precision of language — and an equally delicious enjoyment of how slippery it can become.”

Jonathan Wakeham, Producer


“This feels like a very dangerous game. Exciting, and very brave, and dangerous.”

David Harradine, Artistic Director, Fevered Sleep

“Olly Hawes is a young performer who is sure to find greatness”
