Rules For Being a Man depicts the everyday battle of masculinity, whilst these men go about their lives and struggle to hold on.

Three different generations of men come to terms with love, life and other peoples expectations.
Living in a society where the scars of toxic masculinity are becoming more and more visible on the cultural landscape, Rules For Being A Man looks at the marks men create in themselves, and others. Following three generations of a family centred around one pivotal action, this honest new play attempts to try to come to terms with the different pressures men face going through life trying to be a man and the damaging toll they take on their mental health. Inspired by interviews with survivors of suicide and The Samaritans.
