"They say that the person you are at eighteen defines who you are going to become…"
One Mississippi is a new and hard-hitting verbatim play that explores how childhood experiences shape men’s adult lives, and the journey it takes them on. Blending humour and storytelling with powerful elements of physical theatre, it is an uncompromising insight into what takes us to breaking point.
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh Tue 10–Thu 12 Oct
Tron Theatre, Glasgow Fri 13 & Sat 14 Oct
The Friday evening performance will include a post-show discussion hosted by the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.
Supported by Creative Scotland, National Theatre of Scotland and Websters Theatre
