Nineteen by Shane Pike; Presented by Underground Theatre Co
What happens when you put a writer, a gym-rat, a tradie and a stoner all in one share-house? Mix in some aggression, a shared-ex, insecurity and unwavering pride and you’ve got yourself a recipe for manhood. But is that what it really means to be a man?
Underground Theatre’s production of ‘Nineteen’ by Shane Pike explores masculinity in young Australian men, uncovering a confronting and complex world few often want to talk about. Crafted from interviews with over ninety young people, Nineteen is both the hope and fear of the next generation.
So if you’re in the mood to see a story about love, vulnerability, affection, talking about your feelings and learning to become a kinder, softer human being… this is not the play for you…
