96% of all male rape cases go unreported.
This is Jack’s explosive story as he steps into the absurd world of modern masculinity, masks his trauma and reinvents himself as a 'real man'. How far will Jack go to fit in, whilst hoping his past never catches up with him?
Written by and starring Alex Gwyther (Most Promising New Playwright shortlist - Off West End Awards), Ripped exposes this national crisis and the pressures put on young men to live up to outdated ideals. Directed by Max Lindsay.
Ripped will preview at The Actors Centre prior to premiering at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Underbelly this summer.
