A new dark comedy by Shôn Dale-Jones


A completely made-up true story

Presented by SDJ Productions, originally developed for BBC Radio 4, co-produced by Theatre Royal Plymouth

When the world goes mad, do we inevitably go mad too?

When Shôn playfully cracks an egg on his mother’s head, he has no idea real-life internet trolls will appear on his doorstep. CRACKING takes on the battle between love and hate, asking what’s funny and where we draw the line. Part stand-up, part theatre CRACKING is a funny, touching and thought-provoking solo performance that sews together fact and fiction into one seamless whole making us wonder what’s real, what’s not and what’s gone wrong.

This story about love and hatred celebrates how searching for connection beats disconnecting. CRACKING is a heart warming and uplifting comic story about loving in the face of hatred.

Running time: 75 minutes (no interval)

Recommended age: 14 +
