Bravado – not for the weak hearted

Back to News

Scottee said he felt like he’d received the keys to the town when St Helens Rugby Club presented him with a match worn Rugby kit in 2015 – so perhaps it’s no surprise to find the venue of his new show, Bravado.

The artist is taking over the changing rooms at The Totally Wicked Stadium to perform in front of a audience of just 25.

On the evening of Friday, February 24th, Saints are playing away just down the road in Leigh, meanwhile their usual pre-match surroundings will be used for a new piece of theatre.

Scottee grew up around strong, brave and violent men and boys. Bravado is his memoir of working class masculinity from 1991 to 1999 as seen by a sheep in wolf’s clothing, and explores the graphic nature of maleness and the extent it will go to succeed.

Blood, spit and tears are set against the drunken backdrop of aggressive sensitivity and Oasis songs.

“I grew up around strong, brave, dishonest and violent men and boys. Bravado is an ode to them; a memoir of working class masculinity from 1991 to 1999 as seen by a sheep in wolfs clothing.

“Bravado explores the graphic nature of council estate maleness and the extent it will go to succeed. Blood, spit and tears are set against a drunken backdrop of aggressive sensitivity and Oasis songs.

This show is not for the weak hearted – it includes graphic accounts of violence, abuse, assault, sex and love.  Over 18’s only.
