After hugely successful seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, Gavin Roach returns to Melbourne Fringe with a revised and dynamic performance of The Measure of a Man.
How do you measure a man? Is it the way he walks, the way he talks? Told in Roach’s humorous, raw and deeply candid style, The Measure of a Man will stare into the heart of one man’s sexual anxieties and pull out the stories we try to shy away from – stories often shrouded in embarrassment or shame.
The Measure of a Man is a perfectly-balanced blend of comedy and drama – from light-hearted and uproariously funny moments to gut-wrenching dark moments that expose the scars and open wounds that still remain, hidden underneath the glitter. The Measure of a Man is unmissable – if there is a show in this year’s fringe festival that will enchant, enlighten and exhilarate in equal measure it is Gavin Roach’s The Measure of a Man.
