To Be Frank is a new dance-theatre piece exploring how men and boys are shaped by and influence the world they live in.

An all male cast take responsibility for guiding a boy though his life as he encounters the realities facing young men today. Together they explore questions of power, violence and the suppression of vulnerability in a world where men are seen as a liability to themselves and others.

Theatre Makers Brokentalkers, Artist / Writer Fiona Whelan and Movement Director Eddie Kay explore the physicality and psychology of masculinity combining movement, testimony and research to create an intensely honest and timely theatrical experience.

To Be Frank is funded through an Arts Council of Ireland Arts Grant and is part of What Does He Need? – a long-term project by Fiona Whelan, Brokentalkers and Rialto Youth Project exploring how men and boys are shaped by and influence the world they live in. What Does He Need? aims to create significant public dialogue about the current state of masculinity.
