BRIGHTON FRINGE: Groomed @Sweet Werks

March 8, 2019

Mankind, the Hove-based charity for male sexual abuse survivors, and Ingenious Purpose will present Patrick Sandford’s award-winning show GROOMED at this year’s Brighton Fringe at Sweet Werks (Venue 18) from May 20–26.

BASED on Patrick’s real life experience, GROOMED weaves three narratives: a betrayed schoolboy, a Japanese soldier and the inventor of the saxophone, into a revealing and profoundly human statement.

With specially commissioned music by Simon Slater and directed by Nancy Meckler, both Olivier Award nominees, GROOMED is a blend of testimony, graphic narrative and live music.

Martyn Sullivan, Mankind’s CEO, said: “Patrick has personal experience of Mankind and he invited me to a showcase performance of GROOMED. The story is Patrick’s testimony, but the show has the power to change how we hear, think, and talk about the sexual abuse of men and boys. I immediately knew that we had to support this production and am excited to bring it back to the Fringe for 2019.”
